Young People from across Yorkshire and the Humber and from the North West came together over the weekend to discuss the Northern Powerhouse as one part of an Erasmus+ funded project bringing together young people and Northern Powerhouse decision-makers to ensure that the voice of young people is not lost in its development.

Congratulations to five young people from Yorkshire and Humber on coming in the top 5 of Make Your Mark Champions across the country! Make Your Mark is a national ballot, which took place recently, of young people to choose the issues which will form the basis of campaigning for the next twelve months.
To recognise the massive amount of time and effort they put into to give so many local young people a voice; the British Youth Council have secured a shadowing opportunity with a Minister or Permanent Secretary as part of Whitehall Takeover for each of the five. The event will take place later this month.
