The Youth Council is open to any young person aged 11-19 who lives or goes to school in the Three Rivers District, and is a great opportunity for young people in Three Rivers to have their say, make a difference in their local community, and have fun. Meetings are very friendly and relaxed, and new faces are always welcome.

The agenda for the meeting on the 2 February from 5:30pm to 7:00pm includes Youth Connexions talking about the PREVENT campaign, which will include tips for young people to improve their personal resilience so that young people can be protected from extremism, media, peer pressure and help develop digital awareness. Young people, who are interested in attending, can also listen to a speaker from Healthwatch Hertfordshire, the organisation which helps deliver health, public health, and social care in Hertfordshire. Lastly, it will be decided which local clubs and charities gets donations from the £1000 grant.
