Caerphilly’s local CLIC site, Youth4U is set to go live site in the middle of May with an official big launch in September. For more details please contact Nikki Gethfield at gethfn@caerphilly.gov.uk

Young Newport
Young Newport worked with CLIC to rewrite the Info Section at the last Newport Youth Council AGM. It was a really good event and it gave us the opportunity to consult with young people on how they would like the info section to look like.

Torfaen is carrying out further consultation on their name and designs, they hope to get this work completed at the end of April for a launch in June. If you would like more details please contact Rhiannon Bennett at rhiannon.bennett@torfaen.gov.uk

Young Conwy
Young Conwy is the latest county to join in the CLIC Collective with their new look website launched on 26th March at a large youth event in Venue Cymru, Llandudno. The Youth Service, who is responsible for the website, intends to follow this up with another launch event and use their brand new iPads to show off the website to the young people in the county. If you are interested in learning more about Young Conwy then contact post@youngconwy.com

Powys has named their local CLIC site ‘TOWIP’ and CLIC has been busy working with youth workers and young people to help prepare for an exciting launch planned for early May.

Ceredigion has recruited their editorial group and is beginning to work on the design for the look of their new site.

Young Wrexham
Young Wrexham has nominated one of their editorial group members to carry the Olympic Torch as it passes through Wales. The chuffed CLICer has written a great article about it – check it out on here.

CLIC delivered ACN training in Youth Information Work to youth workers and ACN training in creative skills for the young people.

The Bwsted project recently managed to secure funding from Gwirvol in order to continue their editorial group’s membership on the Millennium Volunteers scheme. The editorial group will use the funding to complete their 50, 100 and 200 hour volunteering placement where they will be working together in taking forward elements of the project together.

Neath Port Talbot
NPT Shake is nearly here!  The name of the site was decided through a competition which was won by Beth Curtis for her entry “Shake”.  Beth was delighted to win a digital camera and goody bag – well done Beth!

Nearly 1000 young people were consulted with over the initial and final designs of NPT Shake and work has started with groups in NPT to get some really great content up on the site too. Watch this space.

TheSprout held its annual awards ceremony, theSprout Awards, in Chapter in April. The awards are designed to recognise the achievements of the young contributors. Awards included best review, funniest article, best creative article and best video. To see how you can get involved with theSprout e-mail arielle@thesprout.co.uk
