A massive well done to the Rathbone Youth Management Team (YMT) for winning the Youth Social Action Award at the London Youth Awards 2017!
The Youth Social Action Award focuses on organisations that have gone above and beyond the ordinary in their dedication to inspiring and supporting young Londoners to lead change in their communities and their own lives.
Through our Youth Management Team we do just that! We encourage and support young people who wouldn’t otherwise have got involved in social action to have a say on and impact the services available to young people and their local community. This is done through involvement in forums, funding presentations and empowering young people to take on leadership roles within the youth club. Our YMT is a fully integrated youth forum that brings together both mainstream and young people with disabilities to take the lead on making decisions on how the youth service is run.
Winning this award gives well deserved recognition to the hard work, time and energy that the YMT members selflessly give to make their youth club the best it can be.
We are extremely proud of the youth workers, volunteers and young people for this great achievement!
