Hello, my name is Ben Lloyd and I am the new Youth Mayor for the Vale of Glamorgan. As part of my manifesto I have pledged to set up work experience opportunities for young people, reform the Welsh Baccalaureate so that it’s better for young people and to work on a curriculum to prepare us for life, so that young people are more prepared for the world of work.
Hello, my name is Nikita Harrhy and I am your new Deputy Youth Mayor. I am going to help Ben achieve his goals. I really want young people across the Vale to know about the Youth Mayor role and to understand that they can talk to us about any problems they are facing. We want to know the issues that affect you so that we can do something about them, together!
