Peer Inspection

Are you 8-17 years old?
 
Do you live in Leeds and want to try different activities around the city?
 
Join the Peer Inspection Team and give back to your community!
 
What is a Peer Inspection?
The council gives money to different youth projects around the city. It is important that these projects are exciting and accessible for all young people. To do this, we need to know what young people think. Rather than sending just adults to have a look, young people visit a variety of projects around the city in different communities, try out activities and speak to people taking part. Their opinions are then shared with local councillors so they know what to spend money on in the future.

What’s coming up?
The Peer Inspection Team are recruiting young people (8-17yrs) for their 2018 summer inspections project. Young people will get to explore the city, trying out different activities and give their feedback about youth projects.
This year the team are offering training sessions leading up to the project which takes place in the summer holidays. Young people will develop skills such as; team work, communication skills, confidence building and youth leadership.
There is also an opportunity to earn a Leeds Youth Award for taking part in the project.

Training dates are:
Tuesday 22nd May, 5-7pm at the Civic Hall
Tuesday 26th June, 5 -7pm at the Civic Hall
Tuesday 17th July, 5-7pm at the Civic Hall
Following the summer inspections a free fun event planned by the inspectors will take place as a thank you.
