We've been working with young people around Dacorum on a series of projects for a number of years now. Some of the projects and opportunities that we offer were suggested and developed by our young people.
Dacorum Youth Forum (DYF)
"I enjoy working with my friends as part of a team to achieve something good for young people in Dacorum." - Cheytan aged 14
The Dacorum Youth Forum is for young people aged 9 to 18. The group was created to give young people across Dacorum a chance to get involved in in their community and develop the confidence to voice their opinion. See the Dacorum Youth Forum page for more information and to find out how to join the group.
Youth Action Entertainers (YAE)
The Youth Action Entertainers group gets together to perform a few times a year. The group aims to give back to the community by performing for older adults and adults with learning disabilities. Some young people do not perform but prefer to talk to residents and help with refreshments on the day. Young volunteers are aged 9 to 19 years old. Visit the Youth Action Entertainers page.
