Are you 14-25 years old and living in North Yorkshire?
Would you like to join North Yorkshire Youth Commission in 2018?
We are currently recruiting young people to join the North Yorkshire Youth Commission on Police and Crime – an exciting initiative in partnership with the Police and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan.
The Youth Commission is aimed at young people aged 14-25 years who want to make a difference to their community. We’re looking for a diverse group of young people from different backgrounds and life experiences to take part, including those who have direct experience of the criminal justice system.
Following the successful work of North Yorkshire Youth Commission, this will now be developed and expanded over the coming years in order to allow young people across the communities of North Yorkshire to inform decisions about policing and crime prevention in the region.
The North Yorkshire Youth Commission allows young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police & Crime Commissioner and North Yorkshire Police (NYP). The Youth Commission will explore urgent issues affecting young people in North Yorkshire, such as reducing offending and re-offending, improving the relationship with the police, and anti-social behaviour.
This is brilliant opportunity for young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experiences. Members of the Youth Commission will play an important role in helping to run consultation events and gather the opinions of other young people about police and crime.
All documents needed to apply for this opportunity are attached. We’ve tried to make this simple and accessible for everyone. We would very much appreciate it if you could encourage any young person who you feel would benefit from this experience to apply, and support them to fill out the application if needed.

Deadline for application forms is: Wednesday 25th July 2018.
