Youth Empowerment Board

The Youth Empowerment Board is open 16 to 21 year olds, from Poplar and Bow, who want to create real change in East London.

The Youth Empowerment Board’s (YEB) mission is to bring young people’s voices into the heart of decision making at Poplar HARCA and forms part of our official governance structure.

There are big changes happening in Poplar and Bow over the next few years. We have recruited a committed group of 25 young people from E3 and E14 who will offer their ideas, feedback and inspiration to influence these changes and ultimately impact the future of their community’s lives.

Key areas of focus for the YEB  will be:

In return, successful YEB applicants will receive massive opportunities, including:

  • Having your say in the things that matter to you
  • Self-development and employability skills
  • Go on a FREE 2 day residential
  • Meet monthly at different, aspirational locations
  • Get 1-to-1 access to a professional mentor
  • Have all expenses covered.
