Development of UK 'Street Law' project gathers steam
The advisory group for Youth Act!, the London pilot of a successful project run in the US by the charity Street Law, was set up this month.The group includes an equal number of adults and young people drawn from schools, the youth service and community groups. Designed to foster young people's political engagement through supporting their initiatives for change, Youth Act! will initially be available in Haringey and Islington, then rolled out gradually over the next three years. The Carnegie UK Trust this month agreed a grant towards training accommodation for participants of Youth Act!. This will complement project funding over three years from Bridge House Estates Trust Fund.
