Last weekend, three of our projects travelled down to London to attend this year’s National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS) Young Partners Awards.
MoJo Media (the young person led media arm of Truth About Youth), the Young People’s Charter for Arts and Culture (YPCAC), and mental health project Change UR Mind were all shortlisted.
We’re happy to announce that the YPCAC and Change UR Mind group walked away with the awards in the arts and culture and health and wellbeing categories respectively. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for everyone involved and despite leaving empty handed, MoJo Media were still thrilled to receive national recognition for their hard work.
Sponsored by BIG Lottery and Participation Works, the NCVYS Young Partners Awards are a celebration of young people and adults working together to make decisions. Winners are chosen by a national panel of young people who visit all shortlisted projects to meet with team members and see their work first-hand.
