Conscious Youth Launches Democracy Café events in Schools and Colleges across Kirklees. 

Students of King James School, Huddersfield.

At Conscious Youth we are great advocates for youth empowerment and civic engagement, and we are excited to announce the launch of our groundbreaking initiative – D-Café. 

Designed to educate and inspire the next generation of leaders, these events have already taken place at Kirklees College, King James secondary school and at the Corner Hub, our youth venue in Huddersfield town centre.  

Democracy Café Events are fun and interactive sessions aimed at providing young people with a comprehensive understanding of both local and national democracy. Through engaging workshops, discussions, and activities, students will explore the fundamental principles of democracy, the importance of civic participation, and the mechanisms of government at various levels.

 “At Conscious Youth we believe in the power of youth to drive positive change in their communities. By equipping young people with knowledge about democracy and governance, we are empowering them to become informed and active citizens”, said Serena Johnson, Director of Programmes at Conscious Youth. 

These events will cover a wide range of topics, including the electoral process, the role of elected officials, the significance of voting, and ways to get involved in political activism. 

Students will have the opportunity to interact with guest speakers, community leaders, and elected representatives, gaining valuable insights and perspectives. “We are thrilled to partner with schools and colleges to bring Democracy Café Events to students,” added Sophie Simpson, Director of Operations. “By fostering an understanding of democracy from an early age, we are nurturing a generation of responsible and engaged citizens who will shape the future of our society.” 

Thanks to the Community Plus Fund, Kirklees Council we can extend this opportunity and we invite schools, colleges, and educational institutions to participate in D-cafe and join the movement to empower youth and strengthen democracy.
