Young Ambassadors

SHAWN

Hi im Shawn. 

Two facts about me are that I have been lucky to go to university on two occasions and I enjoy 80’s music. I enjoy the work of being a Young Ambassador and learning more to help young people get the rights that they deserve in the future. 

SIOBHAN

Hello I’m Siobhan.

I love to read, crime stories are my favourites. I’m off to University to study social work. I became a young ambassador because I am passionate about young peoples rights and advocating to make a change.

Who Are We?

We are Young Ambassadors for the Young Person’s Advisory Service.

 

What Do We Do?

Our role is to represent the voice of young people, both locally and nationally.

 

How Do We Do This?

We work in partnership with the YPAS Participation Worker and we meet regularly at YPAS to plan our involvement in decision making activities. We also travel to events to influence key decision makers.

 

Why Do We Do This?

  • We want to make sure that young people are at the heart of all decisions made that affect them.
  • We want to have a collective voice in our service and wider society.
  • We want to develop confidence and new skills for our future.
  • We want to educate others about the needs of young people.
  • We want to influence and improve services for young people.
  • We want to reduce the stigma around mental health and ensure that young people’s mental health remains a priority.
