The Youth Mayor

Sam Trumpeter

“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”.
