We aim to ensure that every young person in Merthyr Tydfil will have the opportunity to elect a Deputy Youth Mayor each year. We will do this through working with local secondary and schools and the College Merthyr Tydfil to give all young people 11-25 the chance to vote. Young people will elect a Deputy Youth Mayor who will automatically become the Youth Mayor in the following year. In order to stand for the position of Deputy Youth Mayor you need to be aged 11-23 and be living in Merthyr Tydfil.
When you become the Youth Mayor you become a part of the Merthyr Tydfil Borough Wide Youth Forum and Youth Cabinet. The Youth Forum is any young person from across the Borough and the youth cabinet is a group of young people that want to tackle issues and make a difference. Those who are not successful in becoming the Youth Mayor are invited to become a part of the Youth Cabinet.
