Youth Ambassador Board

A new initiative for 2024, the Youth Ambassador Board will be made up of young people (year 9,10,11 or 12 at school) who live in Crowborough (or within 3 miles) and have a passion for their town.

The Youth Ambassador Board will give the young people a chance to make a difference in the town including:

  • The chance to get the voice of young people heard by Crowborough’s  elected local councillors
  • Finding out about what’s happening and what’s planned for the town
  • Impacting decision making in a real-world setting
  • Representing others who may find it difficult to be heard
  • Championing young people’s issues in Crowborough
  • A written reference from the council that can be used for a future school, college, university or work application

It will also give us at Crowborough Town Council, the opportunity to hear what young people want – first hand as well as help to prepare future leaders.

What will the Youth Ambassadors need to do?

Our Youth Ambassadors will need to:

  • Represent young people from the town
  • Attend 4 meetings with councillors during the year
  • Work together as a Board to decide on an aim for the year and then work on that during the year.
  • Attend a ‘Meet the Team’ day during summer 2024
  • Attend the annual Town Meeting and some of the town council’s events
