Voice of young people

The Voice of Young People (VYP), formerly known as the Youth Forum, aims to represent the issues affecting young people and ultimately bring about positive change to improve and develop services in our community. 

At a meeting with Minister Linares, the VYP group were able to express and discuss issues on behalf of other young people who have concerns around issues such as bullying, drug misuse, underage drinking and a need for an Arabic teacher within the education system.

The meeting was very informative and productive and the group were delighted to receive a commitment whereby an Arabic teacher would be starting at the Gibraltar College in the near future and will then be incorporated into the secondary schools’ curriculum meeting the needs of minority groups in our community.
