Welcome to My Place!

We believe in the power of partnership between young people and those in power to make better futures for us all. We do this through our innovative method...


We COMMISSION and train local young people, aged 13-18, to find out what their community loves about their area, and how they want it changed


We CONNECT our young, empowered leaders with local decision-makers and help them build active, ongoing relationships


We support these new partnerships between young community representatives and those in power to CO-CREATE the future of their areas together
