In The Mix Youth Project is a local youth work provider based in Somerset providing informal youth work opportunities and experiences for young people. We are based in Somerset and work in Devon, Somerset and Dorset, we specialise in providing youth work opportunities and youth provision for young people in rural communities. We also provide positive activity days and adventure days for young people and adults alike, providing different and engaging opportunities that enhance peoples experiences.
As part of UK Parliament Week, we’ll be hosting a session with our local MP to encourage our service users, young people, to vote once they become of voting age. We will also hold our own mock election based on today’s most topical issues.
The aim of the event is for young people to understand how our democracy works, to feel empowered, and for them to feel confident about taking part in voicing their views.
This event is open to the public but is aimed at young people, particularly those who wish to use our service.
