The group aims to give young people an opportunity to have their say on local issues and to take part in a range of fun learning opportunities.
Recent projects include working towards getting the football pitch in Soroba improved; organising and taking part in a youth democracy initiative (exchange) with young people from Glasgow and Poland; campaigning for a local alcohol tax; attending a networking event in Harris and starting to plan and fund-raise for summer trips during the school holidays.
Group members have recently done training to set up their Youthbank and it is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS. If you want to apply for a grant see the check out the Argyll and Bute Youthbank. The Criteria explains what can and can't be funded and, if you want to apply, the form is there too.
