#CelebratingYoungPeople Week

Starting Monday 13th March we are hosting our own #CelebratingYoungPeople Week

This will be a week long celebration of young people's achievements. The celebration week is county wide and we are looking for young people/organisations/youth groups/schools that may be interested in getting involved!
The young people involved will be hosting a social media campaign with the week being completed with 2 practical social action events. The aim is to work with as many young people, organisations, youth groups, schools, local businesses etc. as possible to celebrate the greatness of young people and to raise their positive profile.
I am looking for young people who may like to get involved in the planning and hosting of the campaign as well as attending the events.There will be an opportunity for the young people who help plan and host the celebrations to work toward an AQA certificate and or a Norfolk youth award.
Over the course of the week we are including discussions around mental health, demonstrating the greatness of young people including small acts of kindness, asking the general public for positive feedback, celebrating achievements and discussing difference & diversity.
