Croydon’s Young Mayor and Deputy Young Mayor have given thousands of pounds to four projects designed by young people, for young people, ranging from the creation of a community study hub, to a series of anti-knife crime videos.
Ambitious youngsters have won funding to make their ideas become reality after successfully pitching plans to benefit their community to Croydon’s Young Mayor and his panel. Young Mayor William Awomoyi, Deputy Young Mayor Shea Williams and their panel of youth cabinet members have awarded funding to three exciting new initiatives, developed by young people to benefit other young residents.
Croydon’s Young Mayor and Deputy have urged young people to ‘seize the day’ and make a difference by applying for a share of the Young Mayor’s Fund to benefit other young people in their community. With just days to the deadline (Sunday 5 August), they have issued a call to action for young people to submit their initial applications for a share of the £20,000 pot. See the video here.
