A better Brexit for young people?
My Life My Say (MLMS) is a national, non-partisan, youth-led movement which is working to secure a better Brexit for young people. Their aim is to stimulate young people’s engagement in politics by facilitating their involvement in decision-making processes and by evolving relationships between young people and decision-makers.
Their #MyBrexit campaign seeks to put young people at the heart of the EU Brexit negotiations. The campaign does not seek to change the outcome of the referendum, but instead to move forward by setting out a plan that works for young people. It has set up the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on a Better Brexit for Young People and findings from its research will be presented to Parliament, UK decision-makers and EU negotiators.
In the last year MLMS has worked with over 25,000 young people across the UK through events, campaigns and digital outreach. It offers a variety of opportunities for young people age 18-24 that can help them build new skills including volunteering at events, workshops, taking part in social action projects and office administration.
