Young leaders at TCC

There are lots of opportunities for young people to access training and  take action on issues in their communities, either working with adult leaders or in dedicated groups for young leaders, such as:

Youth in Action

​This group brings together young people from TCC member groups and schools to work on issues important to them. Currently the group are working on their Healthy Minds Haven campaign to improve mental health support in secondary schools. The group is also a good place to hear about other opportunities to get involved with other TCC campaigns and join meetings with decision-makers on a range of issues.

When? 

Meetings are usually on Zoom, 6-7pm most Wednesdays during term-time. 

 

How? 

Young people under 18 who would like to join Youth in Action, or other TCC opportunities, will need a parent /carer to complete the permission form by clicking on the blue button below.  TCC staff will then be in contact to say hello and confirm the arrangements. 

"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.
