Why join the YEP?

Reader text

Why become a member of the YEP?

Youth engagement (register now) is an integral component of young people's health and an evidence-based strategy to achieve positive health outcomes and enhance academic achievement. When young people are engaged in decision-making, they feel connected to their educational environment and community, they build relationships with their peers and adults, and they learn new skills. They are more likely to make healthy decisions, have healthy behaviours and take fewer unhealthy risks. When young people are involved in shaping services their engagement and participation becomes far more meaningful and outcomes for organisations are far more likely to be successful.

Why is youth engagement important?

The value of youth engagement and the voices of young people as service users, residents and the next generation of Cambridgeshire is implicit in our Local Authorities aims and priorities. As a result we are committed to enabling all employees, partners and contributors to the authorities work to value and respectfully support the voice of young people and to acknowledge the positive contribution they can make to Cambridgeshire and wider society.

What are the aims of the YEP?

How will the partnership achieve this?
