Local youth councils and forums

You have the opportunity to voice your opinion and help make a difference to young people's rights and responsibilities. You can make new friends and represent other young people from your area. This is your chance to talk to decision-makers about issues that are important to you, decisions such as:

  • the environment
  • public transport
  • things for young people to do

By getting involved in local community projects and helping to make informed and positive decisions, this also promotes a positive view of young people across Dorset.

Their aim is to change services for the better for young people. Anyone aged between 11 and 19 can join DYC. You'll make new friends, learn new skills and change things in your community.
