District Youth Commissioner

Could you be the next Youth Commissioner in Malling? 

Being a Youth Commissioner is an amazing role. As well as helping to drive youth shaped locally and giving young people a say, you'll also be learning loads of new skills and having fun along the way.

You'll get experience and develop skills that will look seriously impressive on a CV or university application - things like teamwork, communication and organisation, but also experience with governance, working with young people and leading others.
