The council gives 12-18 year olds a chance to have a voice in their local borough
Young people are being encouraged to get involved in their local borough with the Dartford Youth Council.
Schools and youth groups have been asked to elect members to be their representatives at the youth council meetings.
Young people elected to DYC must be aged 12 to 18 on the September 1st 2015, and live in or attend a school or youth group within the Dartford borough.
Youth groups can elect up to three members, while schools can elect five - two from years eight and nine, and three from years 10 to 13.
DYC runs as a non-political group, asking members to discuss topics affecting them, from school transport to mental health.
Current DYC chair Chloe-Louise Gebbett said “We’ve had a great year and have already started planning our activities for 2015/16.
“We’d like as many young people as possible to get involved in the DYC and help us make a difference in the Borough.”
Anyone interested can speak to their school citizenship teacher, existing members or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register their interest.
