Why we have created and joined the YPAG
As education is supposed to be about nurturing young minds, this generation that we are trying to teach should have the best options and advice surrounding it.
As young black people who are currently in the education system, we play an important role in sharing our experiences to bring about a difference. I think young people can often have insightful and creative ideas to solving issues.
It’s important to listen those from marginalised groups in order for policies and programmes represent all groups of society.
We have a different perspective from adults and our view of the world can help shape policies and ideologies implemented by adults for the benefit of the next generation.
To be more active in my community.
Young people will become the adults of the next generation, so they should have an input in the society they will inherit.
To be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves. It’s also a great way to develop leadership and communication skills.
