TCC young leaders are running campaigns on: 

  • Mental Health 

  • Climate change 
     

Young people in TCC member groups and schools can get involved, by joining our Campaign Kickstarter Training. 

What? 

The training will build skills and confidence so young people can take action on issues that affect them.  Online or in person sessions are interactive and explore campaign issues which are important to young people, and will develop key skills in community organising and campaigning such as working with decision makers and running effective meetings. This training will also be an opportunity to have fun and meet with other young people from across North East Wales and TCC staff.  You also have the opportunity to join TCC young leaders working on campaigns collaboratively online at our weekly Youth in Action meeting. 

 

When? 

Dates for this year are to be announced. Online training sessions usually run for around 2 hours per week over 3-4 weeks, on a weekday evening.

In-person training usually runs for 1 day at a weekend of in the school holidays.

 

How? 

A parent or carer must give permission for their child to participate through clicking on the blue button above and completing the permission form. TCC staff will then be in contact to say hello and confirm the arrangements. 

 

Access to an internet connected device and Zoom is required to participate in online Campaign Kickstarter training and/or Youth in Action meetings. The meeting will run on Zoom, so participants will be able to see and hear other young people and staff from TCC on their screen, and they can also appear on screen themselves via their device camera if they wish to. 

 

Transport to a venue is required for in-person training and meetings, but please contact us if you require support with this.

"I’ve gained a lot of knowledge about power, and how to speak to people. Before I got into TCC I wasn’t really confident at speaking to people, who I believed had more power than me. I also thought that my opinion wasn’t really valued, but with TCC I’ve learnt that my opinion is important and I know I can talk to anyone about it. I know how to approach someone in power and how to speak to them."

 

Comments from young leaders about working with TCC

"So what I like about TCC is the fact that you can not only help tackle issues within your community, but you can also listen to the opinions of other people, and get your own opinions heard, and that’s really nice."

"I have learnt that everyone has a say in what they want, and that people can come together to help solve one issue."

Our work with young people is funded by the Paul Hamlyn and Esmée Fairbairn Foundations through the Act for Change Fund.
