Summer of Fun – Rights Ambassadors
It’s been a busy summer half term for our Vale Rights Ambassadors as they took part in Children’s Commissioner for Wales #SummerOfFun Mission.
Members started the summer term by taking part in our first outdoor face to face team building session at Porthkerry Park. We had the opportunity to take part in a number of games and activities and the weather was on our side!
We held two Community Ambassador sessions on the 22nd June and 13th July where members completed their #SummerOfFun Mission. Rights Ambassadors planned their own celebration evening with Pizzas, Toasting Marshmallows, Making Smores, Playing Games and submitting their favorite games for the Children’s Commissioner for Wales Play Book. We even made time to present members with volunteering hour certificates recognizing their hard work over the last year.
Summer Of Fun.
As well as having fun, members have been busy raising awareness of the UNCRC and Children’s Rights to members in their local community. Three of our members had the opportunity to attend the Children’s Commissioner for Wales’ Community Ambassador meeting. They were able to give feedback on the work they’ve done as well as hearing from other young people in South Wales. Five of our members were also able to deliver UNCRC workshops in some our local primary schools. Finally members also supported the delivery of UNCRC and Rights Activities at our #SummerOfFun pop up sessions during the summer holidays. Our Rights Ambassadors have delivered UNCRC workshop and activities to 149 children and young people this summer!

You can view the playbook and other play ideas by visiting the Children’s Commissioner for Wales Website. It’s fair to say they’ve been busy and deserve a well earned break! See you all in September.
