Youth of Today Case Studies
National recognition for Young People’s leadership
The Youth of Today project has identified young people taking significant
leadership roles and making a real impact on local decision making. The
National Youth Agency would like to profile these young people and their
stories to give national recognition to young people’s contributions that have
made a local impact.
If you know of young people who have been involved in leading, shaping and
developing services or have campaigned and challenged decision makers we
would like to hear from you.
This comes at a time when many youth services and local youth organisations
are under threat and our sector needs to profile the excellent work of young
people and demonstrate the role of youth work in enabling this.
The NYA will post a selection of case studies on the Global Optimist website,
http://www.globaloptimists.org/ we will also give individual certificates to
young people recognising their contribution as part of The Youth of Today.
If you would like to send in your case study showing young people's
