Youth Empowerment Board

The Youth Empowerment Board provides an opportunity for young people to get involved in the governance of Poplar HARCA.

The Youth Empowerment Board is for 16 to 25 year olds living, studying or working in Tower Hamlets. Members can get involved with projects, debates, campaigns and influencing what happens in their local area.

The board has visited the Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, to discuss community safety, knife crime and acid attacks. Other activities have included volunteering at a local homeless shelter and giving their views on regeneration and development in the area.

We are currently recruiting for more members to join the board. Training, development and networking opportunities are available.
