Young People Insight empowers the voices of young people, aged 16-26, through creativity, conversation and writing, providing them with opportunities to make their voices heard and meet new people in the process.
The Kickback gives young people a space to speak their mind on a variety of topics, which have included Careers, Sex, Mental Health and Freedom of Speech. Each topic is chosen by the young people themselves, ensuring that they are speaking about what effects them while in the room, rather than being spoken at or being spoken about.
The conversation is always dynamic and rich, provoking the minds of those present and helping them to develop a greater level of respect for each other. Snacks are always on hand for a relaxed conversation.
“This is a platform that helps me to be more confident in speaking out, and actually talking to people and inspiring people.” – Andrae
