Our Management Committee

Dudley Youth Council is a group of local young people aged between 11 and 19 (and up to 25 for those with a disability) who represent young people's views and work towards improving things for young people in the borough.

 

Management 2018/19 consists of 6 members.

Oliver Preece - Chairperson

Ben Corfield - Vice Chair

Holly White - Secretary

Harley Keasey - Treasurer

Amman Ahmed - Media Rep (focusing on Social Media)

Anthony Teague - Media Rep (focusing on Website) *

 

*Both Media Reps focus on liaising with Media Organisations and publicising the Youth Council.

This year, DYC has voted that there will be two Social Media Reps for this year due to our rapidly expanding online presence.
