Project Description

Harry Bates

Age 15, England

Volunteering with Blackpool Youth Council I want to bring about changes for my town and its young people. I help run a youth fund giving grants to young people helping them in education or employment and disseminate the Make Your Mark campaign across Blackpool.

I worked on a Youth Summit, and as a Member of Youth Parliament I meet with MPs, including Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP.

I have input funding ideas for Blackpool Opportunity Area and am training to become an Action Researcher to support research on barriers to education.

As peer mentor, I also support young victims of crime.
