IARS’ two youth-led projects, The 99% Campaign and London Youth Now, will be holding a Parliamentary event at 6.30 – 8.30pm, March 25th in Committee Room 15, Cromwell Green entrance. The Parliamentary event will discuss the long term social and mental health implications of unemployment, and what opportunities are available for young people to feel empowered and to build their skills through international opportunities.
With new research published by the Prince’s Trust and Impetus-PEF, the impact of unemployment and the mental health consequences among young people is no longer a simple economic challenge, but a growing social concern. We will bring together young people with MPs, youth organisations to address the current difficulties in finding a job in the current climate.
Please join us in this Parliamentary event as we hear from young speakers who are directly affected by unemployment challenges, Labour MP, Sarah Champion, Conservative MP, Tim Loughton and speakers from Prince’s Trust, Progressio and Impetus-PEF. Young people are encouraged to express their opinions on the topic and at the Q&A session. MPs will be asking the young panellists and audience members to discuss their thoughts about tackling unemployment and their experiences of finding a job.
