Why Make Your Mark matters
Make Your Mark is a chance to have your say and get government to take action on the issues you care about. Make sure you vote to have your voice heard and be part of the UK's largest youth consultation.
Natasha Graves, MYP for Ipswich, said:
Make Your Mark is an excellent activity to host across high schools, youth groups and colleges, as it gets young people engaged with making decisions on a political level. Young people are given the opportunity to have their voices heard and think about what really needs tackling by the government in their community. It also encourages young people to take an active interest in their communities and the world around them, and realise that politics isn’t boring and it does affect them.
Minister for Civil Society Brooks Newmark said:
As a father with 5 children, I know how important it is that all young people are supported to fulfil their potential, regardless of their background or life circumstances. The Make your Mark campaign, supported by government, plays an important role in enabling young people’s voices to be heard. I am delighted to support the launch of Make your Mark today and look forward to what will be a great debate in Parliament later this year.
