Lewisham Delivery stage

pledged of £11,184

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

This event will inspire and empower young people with the ultimate aim of tackling a number of issues that affect them. From initiating discussions about youth mental health to providing information on housing options, this event will cover a range of topics relevant to young people. We also seek to promote the wider Lewisham community by involving up to 50 local business, as well as showcasing some of the amazing - as yet undiscovered - talent Lewisham has to offer. While the event name suggests it’s only for young people, we know the benefits derived from supporting and nurturing our youth positively impacts everyone in the community. Support us in celebrating their many successes and achievements that go unnoticed.

What we'll deliver:

  • To deliver an empowering youth conference for 500 young people
  • We will hire a photographer to take still images and video of the event
  • We will hire a well-known host, as well as a local, well-know main event act.
  • We will purchase awards to hand out to celebrate youth achievement

Why it's a great idea:

Our previous five youth conferences that we have put together have been of great success with over 3,000 young people attending. The conference gives young people an opportunity to have a voice and have a say on what is happening, and what is going to happen within their community. We also give the chance for local people to perform their skills in front of a crowd of about 500 people.

Steps to get it done:

  • Design flyers and start with a social media campaign
  • To invite educational establishements, youth organisations, employers, and entrepreneurs to have an information stall
  • To invite Lewisham Young Mayor to the event
  • To invite Local MPs to the event so thy can engage with Local Young People
  • To invite the Mayor of Lewisham to the event to give a speech
  • To recruit 30 young volunteers from Lewisham to help plan and manage the event

The Lewisham Youth Conference has become an annual event that promotes a different core value each year. Since its inception in 2014, we have attracted over 1,000 young people to our Lewisham Youth Conferences.
