Learners are voting this week on what they would like to be discussed at this years Youth Parliament. Make Your Mark is an annual event where young people get an opportunity to have their say on what matters to them. Is is a great way to get young people to learn about the political process and how democracy works.
Our Barnsley Youth Councillors presented information in assemblies about the 10 issues that young people have decided matter to them. This includes such things as a curriculum for life, transport, votes at 16, first aid education and mental health. The votes will be counted both locally and nationally to decide the two top issues for further action.
