Youth Forum Win at City Pitch!

by Dec 17, 2014Youth Service

The Baytree Youth Forum visited City Hall on Thursday 11 December, where six groups of young people from our member clubs pitched for up to £1,000 towards their social action project. City Pitch’ is a joint initiative with the Santander Foundation and the Mayor’s Fund for London delivered in partnership with Baytree’s NGO partner, London Youth.

A variety of projects were presented, and each of the groups impressed the panel with their ideas, presentation, and passion.

Our Youth Forum ladies presented for their social action campaign, a Women and Girls Empowerment photography project to tackle the issues around gender based violence and in collaboration with a local refuge centre. They were awarded £1,000!

Their campaign will begin in Spring 2015, and will hope to create awareness of VAWG in Lambeth, hold a photography exhibition with partner charities, and raise money for NGOs tackling this issue.
