Gateshead Youth Assembly


Gateshead Youth Assembly is a great example of what can happen if you give young people support and opportunities.  The GYA is a democratically elected body of young people who meet at least once a month to discuss current issues. 

The Executive and sub committees meet between times to prepare the ground for the full meetings.  The delegates grow in confidence and go on to challenge the status quo both locally and nationally. 

The GYA provides support and the appropriate training for its members throughout the year starting with a training weekend right at the start just after the elections.
