We are proud to support Ripon YMCA and their Teen Talk Initiative.
Ripon Teen Talk is an opportunity for Ripon’s young people to develop a voice and influence in their community. Young people share experiences of growing up in Ripon and help to highlight need and identifying gaps in provision for young people.
The aims of Teen Talk is to:
- meet 6 times a year to provide a focus for youth voice
- provide a space for young people to have a voice which will be fed into the youth voice partnership and local democratic structure by YMCA staff
If you would like to know more about Teen Talk, please contact Ripon YMCA or attend one of their meetings for young people.
