WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO
There’s no limit to where young people should have their voices heard. This year YAPs have:
- Spoken to the Home Secretary about our #CrimeNotCompliment Campaign
- Met colleagues in Plan Somalia through a shadowing day
- Fed in to proposals put forward at the Government Department for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development
- Engaged with Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp through the Plan Global Hub
YAPs have made their voices heard far and wide across Plan International UK and beyond.
YOUTH ADVISORY PANEL '21
We have just closed our latest recruitment run for the Youth Advisory Panel! We can't wait to introduce you to our new cohort of Youth Advisors later this year.
We shape a way forward by bringing everyone together to learn how Plan works, and we listen and learn from young people as experts in their own lives and experiences. We share skills through workshops, training, and running projects with youth advisors and staff.
Our YAPs have had the chance to speak in parliament, shadow our staff members from across the organisation, work with our partners like Chelsea FC and Urban Outfitters. And in everything that YAP do with us, we’ll make sure that they feel confident and supported by our staff team. We can't wait to show you what our new panel will get up to.
I met with Priti Patel to talk about public sexual harassment.
