We're busy providing young people with exciting opportunities across England and Wales.
Providing opportunities for engagement and increasing understanding of the waterways is critical to inspiring a new generation of enthusiasts who will ensure their long-term sustainability.
A varied programme of youth engagement projects has been delivered in the past under our Waterways Action Squad brand. These include: a north west based youth volunteering project for 16-25 year olds, a 6-month employability, volunteering and personal development programme for 16-19 year olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) and the creation of a youth activity centre at the National Waterways Museum.
The youth engagement advisory group understands more fully the wider context of engaging young people, so that we can plan and deliver effective, innovative programmes.
The group also helps with issues of significance relating to engaging young people, especially those that may be innovative or controversial.
