Be Body Positive Youth Panel: Who Are We?

About the Bodywhys Youth Panel
The Youth Panel is made up of young people aged 16-25 who collaborate with the Bodywhys Youth Development Team on a regular basis to represent the views of young people.

Bodywhys work closely with the youth panel in the development of any programmes which will be used with young people in schools or youth groups. The youth panel are also involved in the design of youth leaflets, posters and any material for schools, youth groups or youth events. We really rely on the Bodywhys Youth Panel input to let us know how to best support young people to challenge current pressures to body image.

Some of the activities the Youth Panel may be involved in:
• Helping to spread the ‘Be Body Positive’ message and ideas for how to do so
• Thinking up new ideas for services for young people
• Helping to develop a Youth content for our website
• Developing ‘body image’ content for our programmes for schools
• Helping to design/develop leaflets and other stuff for young people
• Being a Bodywhys representative at events.
