The GYC is a group of approximately 8 young people who help to get the views of young people from Gosport heard. It is an organisation run by young people for young people. We represent you if you are aged between 11 and 19 and you live in the borough of Gosport. We tackle issues that affect you as young people and we get involved in projects such as Gosport Summer Passport, the Royanne Twinning and Youth Award. We are currently planning a trip to London and the Houses of Parliament, the next Tour De Gosport and aiming to launch a new website!
If you would like to make a difference or help with other issues affected young people, come along to the next meeting, new members are always welcome! Our next meeting is on: Wednesday 6th July 2016, Gosport Town Hall 4.45pm meet, for a 5pm start. Details of forthcoming meetings and events are available from the pocket card here. The minutes from the last meeting are also available for you to read here.

Earlier in 2016
A recent survey was carried out on Survey Monkey in December 2015 and a summary of the results can be found here.
Following this survey, a Careers Youth Conference took place on Thursday 14th April at St Vincent College. This was organised by Tash Hook from Caroline Dinenage MP's office and the members of GYC. Students from Brune Park, Bay House, Bridgemary Schools took part along with pupils from The Key and Motiv8. Guest speakers included David Thompson, Nick Casper and Stuart Lovibond who all gave interesting talks about their careers, and a series of workshops was held throughout the day along with stalls of information from local organisations. Feedback from the workshops and survey are available in the report here.
