What Have We Been Up To?

Recently, the Youth Council have been looking into Youth Employment Rights. They are planning to go into schools and talk to the pupils to make sure they are informed properly. They have also been learning about local politics and the history behind some recent wars that have started over politics, such as what has been happening with Israel and Palestine.
