The Essex Council for Voluntary Youth Services (ECVYS) which represents Voluntary Youth Organisations in Essex, Southend and Thurrock is holding a conference on 'Raising Youth Aspiration in Essex' on 13 October 2018 at Anglia Ruskin University.

There are many factors that cause young people to disengage and have low aspirations but what exactly are they? How can we, as youth workers and volunteers in Essex work with these issues to best support our young people and help them to be the best that they can be? What could we achieve together to improve this support and be an even stronger community of  youth organisations?


The Right Revd Roger Morris, The Bishop of Colchester. 

Professor Iain Martin, The Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University.
