The Medway Youth Council is currently in the process of recruiting new members in Year 7-12. The Medway Youth Council (MYC) started in 1998, as the Medway Youth Parliament, with our official launch in 1999. In September 2017, we changed our name to the Medway Youth Council, under the leadership of George Perfect.
We are a forum for young people – run by young people – we are totally independent but supported by Medway Council. MYC has two main roles in addressing issues raised by young people and acting as a consultative group for decision-makers.
Young people who join Medway Youth Council benefit from the following:
- Working and meeting with a team of diverse young people from across the Medway towns on campaigns for young people
- Bringing change for young people
- Representing the Youth Voice of the conurbation
- Being a positive role model in the community
