North Lanarkshire Youth Council (NLYC)
NLYC is the Voice of Young People of North Lanarkshire and is made up of nine democratically elected Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament and 18 young people from each of the nine local youth voice groups.
NLYC meets on a fortnightly basis where representatives for each of the local youth voice groups and MSYPs provide an update on successes and issues coming from the local areas. In addition, the group then plan and act on key tasks, creating action plans and evaluating projects.
The membership of this group changes every 2 years. We currently have a new group who, over the next few months will be working on team building and planning and looking at how they can engage as many young people as possible in youth voice activities.
