112      (41)  YOUNG MAYORS AWARD – The Director of People submitted a report which sought approval of a new award that was proposed be introduced in North Lincolnshire for young people in school years 7, 8 and 9.  It would be attainable by all young people, including those who preferred to be active and enjoy a challenge and was designed to encourage young people to get involved in activities in their communities.

It was proposed that the new award be named, ‘The Young Mayors new year award’.

It was explained that the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme (D of E) was well established in North Lincolnshire and was available for young people aged 14-24 years. The proposal for the young mayor’s award had been developed following the researching of projects for young people which encouraged them to get involved more practically at a much younger age.

The cabinet member was advised that the programme would be delivered jointly between the North Lincolnshire Council, Duke of Edinburgh Manager and Positive Activities provider, ‘Youth Pursuits’.

Further details of the proposed programme were outlined within the report and associated appendix.

Resolved – That the introduction and development of the Young Mayors New Year Award be supported and endorsed.
