Primary & High Schools Forum

The youth forum is designed to give young people in The Ribble Valley a voice, and enable us to be a facility in which they have had an input in to, and will get the best out of. 
Working as a 'grass-roots' group, the Youth Forum has a direct input in to the Schools and Projects team, and ideas generated by the forum are listened too, taken on board and put it to action accordingly. 
The forum also has access to our staff where they can learn all about planning and promoting an event, youth work and what it takes to work in the arts sector.
