Do you know anyone who would be a good candidate for the Young Mayor Election 2019?
Lewisham Young Mayors Election takes place on 16th October 2019 across the secondary schools and colleges of Lewisham.
Now is the time for young people who are interested in being a candidate to put themselves forward, any young person who is between the ages of 13 and 17 years and who goes to school/college, lives or works in the borough can stand in the election.
It is a great opportunity for young people to follow their interests in politics or being active in the community, to further causes such as the climate emergency. They will have the chance to gain new experiences, and contribute to discussions and policy making around a wide range of issues that affect young people and their communities in Lewisham.
Whatever their passion they will be supported to work with politicians, council officers, partners and other young people to make a change in Lewisham, while developing their confidence and learning new skills.
The closing date is 5pm Friday 13th September 2019
All the details needed are in the candidate pack, the link is here: Young Mayor Candidate Pack 2019 and there is one attached. Please share with any young people who you think might be interested.
We can come into school to do assemblies, give out information at lunchtimes, or whatever might suit individual schools in order to have discussions with young people about what it entails and how they can be involved. We also have a very influential Young Advisors group, which works with the Young Mayor which could be an alternative for some.
If you need any further information or a candidate pack please contact the Young Mayor Team:
