This mission brings the voices of young people to the forefront to give them agency and a platform to shape their environment. By this we mean trusting young people and sharing power in decision-making processes. To make this mission a reality we have to listen to our youth, even when what they have to say might be challenging or uncomfortable to hear.
We want to give young people in Camden the best start in life. We are a borough rich with opportunity – and through this mission we want to work with Camden-based businesses and organisations to open up access to networks and resources and bring them closer to young people.
Our goal is that every young person, no matter their background, will be able to explore their interests, express creatively, and be safe to experiment and try out things so that they can make well-informed choices about their future. Quality education and having spaces for creativity, fun, building connections and caring for oneself and one another are key for this mission.
