Why does the West Tamar have a Youth Mayor?
The 2023-2026 West Tamar Youth Strategy identifies the goal of developing formidable young people. Goal 1 of the the strategy mentions we will offer our Youth Mayor 4 professional development sessions each year by a professional mentor. We envisage the possibility to train and equip young people on a larger scale through a range of creative and innovative mentors in the field. The role of Youth Mayor is a fantastic way to publicly and effectively work towards the goal of developing formidable young people.
