Youth Council

Aged 11 to 16 and living on Portland? This could be your opportunity to make a big difference for young people across the Island.

Portland Town Council are launching its first youth council. If you’re not sure what a youth council does, you can download the information pack below.

The important thing is that you don’t have to be an expert on politics – anyone can give it a go. You just need to feel passionately about the Island and its young people.

Successful candidates will receive training and support from Portland Town Council and ICA across a wide range of different areas.

To apply you need to just need to complete the online application form (see below) and ask your parent or carer to complete the consent form, which can also be downloaded below.

Once complete, please return both forms to ICA via email or send / drop them into the ICA office. Contact details are on the application form.

NOTE: We cannot accept applications without the completed consent form.

The Portland Youth Council project is running with support from Atlantic Academy Portland and The Drop In Portland.
