I am really excited in recent weeks to have started working with a fantastic team of people and a fantastic group of young people. Most people who know about my past will know about how involved with youth participation I have been in and will know how passionate I personally feel about young people being involved in decisions and having a voice in their local community and I am pleased to be supporting Maidstone Youth Forum who are all fantastic, passionate and enthusiastic young people.
The youth forum is where those 11-21 can come and express their views and organise projects for young people they meet every Wednesday at Switch Youth Cafe in Maidstone from 4pm until usually 5:30pm.
That brings me onto Switch Youth, I know most of my visitors are under 21 so I will talk a bit about Switch Youth too. I am also pleased to be volunteering at Switch Youth Cafe. I love how the young people who come through the doors can be themselves and feel so comfortable and at home. The team of staff and volunteers make it possible to be an outlet for them, there are no barriers for support and you can get food and drink at affordable prices (coffee... real bean coffee,,, yes, real bean). It is near impossible to find a place as cheap as this because whilst selling food and drink (at the lowest prices in Maidstone - there are FREE (yes free) fruit and bottled water for the young people.
