Two Year 10 students attended one of the Brent Youth Parliament (BYP) meetings on Saturday morning 28th January 2023, to get an experience of what it’s all about. They had some interesting discussions and took part in a debate about whether fashion catwalks do harm to society or not. They found it fun and engaging. They will be attending again with more students from the school.
BYP meets once a month and the group gets involved in issues affecting young people in Brent as well as representing young people nationally in the UK Youth Parliament. The group is open to young people who live, study, work or volunteer in Brent and are aged 10-19 (or up to 25 for young people with learning disabilities). Meetings involve debates, campaigns and workshops and are led by young people.
Joining BYP will give BRC students the opportunity to have their say and make change in their community.
