Vote for a Youth Mayor for Lambeth

Lambeth is going to be holding its second elections for a Youth Mayor and UK Young Parliament representative, and nominations are open now. If you're aged between 11 and 21, and live, work or study in Lambeth, this is your chance to stand up for young people in your area.

Lambeth's Youth Council, run by young people for young people, and the new Youth Mayor and UKYP rep, will work together to allocate £25,000 worth of funding towards projects that will help improve life for young people in Lambeth.

Although the Lib Dems have dismissed the initiatrive, In 2007-08, eight youth projects in the borough were funded through this scheme, including a social support network for young refugees, a cultural exchange programme, and a peer mediation project with St John's Primary school. Last year’s Youth Mayor Elections attracted 35 potential candidates and the votes of over 3000 local young people who chose 15 year old Satya Panigrahi as their first ever Youth Mayor.

The Youth Mayor acts as spokesperson for young people in Lambeth and provides a link between the young people, media, decision-makers and service-providers. The Youth Mayor is responsible for allocating £25,000 in funding to projects designed for and run by local young people. The Youth Mayor will also work in partnership with other members of Lambeth Youth Council to highlight and campaign on issues which are important to local people.

On 26 February selected schools in Lambeth will be hosting polling stations to enable their students to vote. You must be registered by 3 February 2009 to vote, so don't delay. To nominate yourself for Youth Mayor or register to vote in the elections, visit http://www.youthmayor4lambeth.com/.

Adulthood actor and Lambeth resident Arnold Oceng (pictured), fronts Lambeth's 2009 Youth Mayor and UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) representative election campaign. Arnold says: "It's great that young people are represented through Lambeth Council. Lambeth is one of the coolest places to live in London and there's a lot happening here. I'm proud to be from Lambeth. We've come a long way and developed more as a community and we are even more multicultural than ever before. Sometimes young people don't get a chance to influence decisions affecting them and that's a real shame. This election is a real chance for you to have your voices heard by local and national government."

I am looking for my memories through the stories, the narrative of people. I feel it is difficult but I will try.
