16 young people have been selected to join the National Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Youth Board!
We received over 100 applications and shortlisted 40 young people to take part in the selection day on 28th April.
After an action packed day, 16 young people aged from 9 to 19 years old were chosen to be Youth Board members. They will represent the views of thousands of schools and young people from across the UK, offering advice on anti-bullying policies and practices. The members will also be given the opportunity to help with the planning of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week which takes place in November.
Alex Holmes, Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme Manager said: “I was really impressed with the applications we received for the National Anti-Bullying Youth Board. I am looking forward to meeting up with the board members throughout the year and hearing their views, ideas and recommendations. The National Anti-Bullying Youth Board members will provide a true insight into bullying issues throughout the UK and listening to them will shape our approach to bullying for future generations.”
