Representing Crawley’s Youth
The CYPC aims to help young people develop skills and capacity to help them participate more fully in society, help young people develop their skills and capabilities to enable them to participate in local democracy. They also provide activities which create better understanding between people of different ages and backgrounds, provide and support various cultural activities around the town.
Last year, the CYPC helped to organise many events including Youth Question Time, Culture Shock, The Youth Conference and supported Crawley Main Stage and Mela, as well as working in partnership with other youth groups across the town.
The Youth Mayor
“I’ve been involved with the CYPC for 4 years now and it has opened up so many opportunities for myself. I have been chair of the CYPC for 3 years and am currently serving my second term as Crawley Youth Mayor. The council is an organisation very close to my heart as I can see the positive changes that we have made and are continuing to make”.
The youth is the hope of our future.
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
That's where the future lies, in the youth of today
People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
