Make It Happen: 2020 Youth Conference Brief

Frome Town Council are looking for a host organisation to develop and deliver our annual youth conference; Make It Happen in March 2020, with a budget of £6,000.

The event which has been developed, with partner organisations over the last four years, aims to engage young people aged 12 and 13 yrs old, (all year 8 pupils attending Selwood, Oakfield, Critchill and Steiner Frome schools).  Young people from Frome College have supported the running of the days. In recent years we have run the event over two days with pupils from all four schools attending for one day each in mixed groups.

The aim of Make It Happen is to provide young people with an exciting and engaging programme which enables them to;

  • Learn new skills, useful in a volunteering role and or social contexts
  • Further develop their understanding of democratic processes and how they can inform decision making in their town
  • Have a voice in the development of ideas and projects for Frome
  • Work together breaking perceived barriers between the schools and prepare for transition in to Frome College

This has been achieved through participation in a range of practical workshops throughout the day and through participating in voting in the People’s Budget Events Vote.  In addition, young people have benefited from whole group sessions with key note speakers and young, inspiring, role models.

We would like to keep the People’s Budget vote as part of the event but are open to new ideas and suggestions of how the event could be planned, organised, managed and delivered.

We are inviting tenders to be submitted in writing to hellardk@frometowncouncil.gov.uk by 10am on the 14th October.

Please get in touch if you would like more information and or to come in for an informal chat.
