The main foundation of Young People Insight is young people using their voice and making a difference. This is also the aim of a new competition by the Young Opportunity and Fairness Commission (YOFC) in Croydon, who are encouraging the young people of Croydon to make a difference in their community.
The YOFC was set up by the Croydon Opportunity and Fairness Commission in the hope of giving the young people of Croydon a voice to be heard. Their final aim is to develop key proposals for the Commissioners to take into account – particularly what they feel could better their health and well-being, safety, opportunities in education and career prospects.
The YOFC have developed a competition for 11-24 year olds living or studying in Croydon called ‘Share What’s Unfair’. Young people have until July 31st to tweet, Instagram or Facebook a picture of what they think is unfair for them in Croydon, using the hash tag, #CROunfair.
Everyone entering this competition is helping the YOFC to gain insight into what young people think is unfair for them in Croydon. This will further aid the development of proposals with the Commissioners of the Croydon Opportunity and Fairness Commission.
If using your voice to make a difference isn’t enough, the winner will receive an iPad mini! Gift vouchers will also be given to those in second and third place, which means you will be in with a greater chance of winning something.
To be in with a chance of winning an iPad mini, tweet @OppCroydon, join the Opportunity Croydon facebook page and share your photo, or tag @oppcroydon in your photo on Instagram. Don’t forget to use the hash tag, #CROunfair, though. Any terms and conditions can be found on the Facebook and Instagram pages.
So start snapping your photos now and ‘Share What’s Unfair’!
