Kirklees Youth Summit

9th February 2016

On Tuesday 9th February the Kirklees Youth Summit was held at Manor Croft in the main hall from 4.00 pm until 6.00 pm.  Young people from five high schools in Dewsbury and Mirfield attended the summit which was led by Kirklees Council.  Local councillors, youth workers, teachers and young people were actively engaged in debating the important issues affecting young people in the local area and the awareness of local issues was raised significantly.  Michelle Ross, organiser, said "It was a fantastic evening and the young people from all schools were ambassadors in representing their schools as well as the local community".
