1000th young person joins Student life charity

A regional charity has got the new year off to a fantastic start with its 1000th young person signed up to collaborate.

Student Life works with over 40 schools and colleges in Suffolk, where young people are invited to take an active leadership role in the organisation; including at board level. The basic platform is a lifestyle publication produced for and by students, focusing on themes important to them.  Content is based on fifteen core subjects including BEAUTY, CAREERS, FASHION, FINANCE, FOOD AND MENTAL HEALTH.  Areas are highlighted and then tackled by the students; such as stigma and media stereotypes surrounding mental health, body image and bullying.

“The Senior Leadership Teams at the schools & colleges are thrilled to be offered the opportunity for their students to get involved with an enrichment project that up skills students and enhances CV’s and Sixth Form, College and Uni applications” said Student Life CEO Richard Stewart.  “Student Life offers its readers the opportunity to read real life stories and experiences from students in secondary, further and higher education; the content of which lends itself to peer to peer advice and support on a range of topics, including a strong focus on Mental Health.

“For readers who are currently not in education, it offers an insight into the lives of Suffolk students and helps to increase understanding of young people’s views and the challenges they may face” explained former University Students’ Union President and Student Life Director, Rachel Mitchell.

2020 sees the official launch of Student Life’s Mental Health Ambassador project in schools and colleges; a groundbreaking, young person led approach to emotional wellbeing.
