Throughout the year, we will not only celebrate the stories of those who have been part of the youth voice movement, we’ll also celebrate the young people who continue to champion our vision for a better world.
This week young people from across the UK will attend the Commonwealth Youth Forum as part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) taking place in London.

“The British Youth Council radically changed my career and life path. I had no idea what I wanted to do. But by volunteering with the charity, and seeing how it shapes young people's lives I now know I want to have my own career doing something similar”.
