The Young Essex Assembly (YEA) is the elected youth council for Essex. Young people representing all districts in Essex were elected on to the YEA in December 2014, at the same time taking part in one of the largest surveys in the county to identify which issues are most important to young people.
The YEA is made up of 75 young people from Essex who have been elected to represent young people in the county and to campaign to make a positive difference to their lives. YEA members will be listened to by the county council and by other groups working with or for young people.
The YEA has representatives from all districts/boroughs across Essex, with members in post for two years. It sits six times a year, while its subgroups also meet regularly.
If you have any questions about the YEA, or are interested in getting involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
