Become a Bite Back 2030 Youth Leader - Apply Now!
All young people should have the opportunity to be healthy, no matter where they live. That includes having access to affordable and nutritious food, but right now, over a million don't. Bite Back 2030 exists to change that. All of us are up against a flood of unhealthy food... 3.3 million children are overweight and the UK has the worst childhood obesity rates in Western Europe. It's time to take charge and make change happen!
Young people are at the heart of Bite Back 2030 and have been since our launch in 2019. We are a movement that exists so that every young person in the UK has access to healthy food, no matter where they live. Young people just like you are our real power. Together, you help us become a force that the food industry simply cannot ignore.
This is why we are looking for Youth Leaders that can help us get the big players in business and government to listen and act on a very important topic - the right to healthy food! We are delivering this training programme for young and passionate minds to come together to drive this movement forward.
All we ask is that you:
- Will be aged 15 - 18 years old on the date that you attend the first training day
- Can commit to joining Bite Back's Youth Leadership programme for one year
- Have an interest in child health and are passionate about making a positive difference to society for young people
- Want to be the driving force behind positive change in your local community
- Want to take an active role in helping Bite Back 2030’s mission to campaign for a better food system
We've been working with young people since we launched. Here's what some of them had to say about their experience with Bite Back 2030...
Tasha: "The last 6 months since joining Bite Back have been FANTASTIC! I've met some incredible people and done some really cool stuff that I never thought I would do so early on in my activism."
Dev: "My time so far at Bite Back has been phenomenal and I’ve really enjoyed the opportunities and experiences I’ve received and at the same time making a great change in the food industry."
These young people have got involved with activities including; writing letters to their MP's, meeting with businesses, speaking about campaigns on their local radio and attending networking events!
