At POINT we have our own Youth forum called Sound of the Youth (SOTY). SOTY was set up initially to provide young people with free music events in the local area.
Since then SOTY has transitioned to our very own youth forum. The forum is run by SOTY senior members who meet once a month to discuss ideas for the centre, talk about what’s going well, what’s not going well and anything they would like to see happen at POINT.
The senior members then facilitate, once a month an open meeting with the whole of drop in where they can hear the opinions of others The young people then feed back to staff who develop the young peoples ideas into the drop in program. Since SOTY has developed their forum the young people have raised money for a graffiti project, inputted into the re-decoration of the building, fundraised for new equipment and also fed into the Pembrokeshire Youth Assembly.
For more information on the youth forum, please contact. Kate on 01348 871887 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
