The Rutland Youth Council (RYC) is a decision making and discussion group made up of young people from Rutland.
RYC meet once a month to talk about issues that affect young people and take action on these issues.
The role of a RYC member includes:
- peer consultation
- delivering presentations at conferences
- meeting with Cabinet members of Rutland County Council
- planning local campaigns
It may sound like a lot of work - but there's lots of fun, too.
Members get to go on a weekend residential once a year.
There's a rewards and incentives system, with vouchers and trips for all the hard work they do.
If you're serious about getting involved in making a difference for young people - this is definitely the project for you!
Elections are held once a year - but there are chances to join at other times, too.
