The Corner’s Year of Young People

SIDE The Corner_s Year of Young People

The Corner has launched a new campaign in support of the Year of Young People.

Year of Young People (YOYP) is a national campaign which aims to give all generations across Scotland the opportunity to come together and celebrate the successes of young people.

As part of this, The Corner will be highlighting work carried out with young people across the city to showcase their talents, achievements and ongoing successes.

The service aims to connect with local young people in a variety of ways such as through the city centre drop-in, social media, school and community-based outreach sessions.

Interactive activities which address the campaign’s key themes will help empower young people with increased knowledge of relevant services available to them.

Corner volunteer Cameron Price has created a bright and colourful window display for the YOYP campaign and there are resources and literature available for young people to access through the drop-in and outreach sessions.

The campaign will also be used to continue to promote The Corner Culture of Kindness, which was launched during national Anti-Bullying Week in November 2017 and states “The Corner team believes we all have the right to live free from bullying and harrassment. By treating each other with respect we can all help prevent it.”

Throughout the campaign social media updates will allow young people to access additional information and support. You can follow The Corner at facebook.com/thecornerdundee, @TheCornerDundee on Twitter and @CornerDundee on Instagram and Snapchat.
