Why our members joined YOW
"I joined the Youth of Walsall (YOW) to inspire young people in Walsall and give them a say in today’s society. I believe young people are undermined and if we can start giving them a say locally, it will cause a national affect."
- Renee, Member of Youth Parliament and YOW Member
"I joined Youth of Walsall so that I would be able to make a difference within my community, to learn more about issues within my local area and to meet and work with other people with the same goal as me. I believe young people are overlooked and their voices aren’t heard, and groups like this enable us to have a voice. "
- Chloe, YOW Member
"Youth of Walsall has given me and other members the power, courage and a voice to make a positive change in our community. I joined three months ago and I have definitely found a way to express my thoughts with like-minded young people focusing on issues that affect our area by tackling or improving them."
- Harvind, YOW Member
"I joined YOW last year and have loved going ever since. Being born and raised in Walsall the recent increase of crime especially that of knives is upsetting, with YOW we have an opportunity to change Walsall for the youth of tomorrow."
- Ibrahim, SLPB youth representative for Walsall South and YOW Member
