Washington Youth Council is a youth forum made up of young people in Washington aged 12-19 who aim to promote and raise recognition of positive images of young people.
The forum are looking to recruit new members who want to help change the way young people are portrayed, meet new people and have a voice.
Washington Youth Council is a fantastic way to get involved, make a difference and restore the image of a generation.
The group discuss issues raised by local young people, liaise with local Council members, plan events and raise awareness of positive activities carried out by teenagers.
