What is our YPDG?

A talented group of young people have formed the Hammersmith and Fulham Young People’s Development Group.

This team of young people have had the opportunity to become involved in many aspects of WEST’s development including recruitment, fundraising events, interior design as well as the general development of the building site.

The group has successfully branded the Youth Zone, WEST, and are now looking forward to being a key part of its early life.

What's involved?

They’ve visited existing Youth Zones in the North West and London to get an idea of what it would be like once theirs is complete. They have also had the chance to support with the Youth Zone’s interior design and staff recruitment. They even gave our CEO a job!

Brandy said: “We meet up every week and talk about Youth Zones as well as presenting to other groups in the local area and going on residentials.”

If you would like to get involved, please email shineade.burton@onsideyouthzones.org.
