Youth voice

Youth Ambassadors - Alix and Hermione 2

Children and young people are at the heart of what we do in the Doncaster OA.

We have a group of Doncaster youth ambassadors who are working with us to ensure that young people are at the heart of our plan. The youth ambassadors have already:

  • Been on the radio to talk about the Opportunity Area
  • Met with the Education Secretary about the programme
  • Developed ideas for a marketing campaign to promote Doncaster as a great place to live
  • Sat on bid assessment panels
  • Spoken at events on our behalf

If you’re interested in knowing more and possibly becoming a youth ambassador, email us at Doncaster.OA@education.gov.uk
