Highland Youth Voice
Highland Youth Voice is an elected body of young people drawn from every area of Highland. The first elections were held in October 2000 and are held every 2 years.
From 1 October 2011, Highland Youth Voice is being provided by High Life Highland an arms length company set up to deliver community learning and leisure services for The Highland Council.
Its 70-100 members are elected through secondary schools (either 2 or 3 members per school, depending on the school roll) and the local area Youth Forums, of which there are 8 and they have 4 representatives each.
The young people have a wide range of opportunities to 'have their say' and are also involved in taking forward their own agenda and tackling issues that are important to them.

Dialogue Youth was a Scottish Executive initiative, concerned with making sure young people could access information and influence the public services provided. Further information on Dialogue Youth can be found on the national web site located in the External Links section.
The Dialogue Youth approach has now been mainstreamed into the way we work with young people in Highland and uses more of the informal methods of engagement through the use of technology.
