Rocking Ur Teens to celebrate key milestone at Houses of Parliament
Having positively impacted the lives of over 1,000 teenagers and teachers over the last 3 years, Rocking Ur Teens is holding a special event at the Houses of Parliament to celebrate this achievement and mark the milestone.
Taking place on 4th July, the event will bring together teenagers from across the UK to continue the positive work Rocking Ur Teens does to support teenagers in a safe, fun, environment to learn, share and grow whilst providing effective tools to help them navigate their teenage years.
Attendees will hear from hosts and speakers from past conferences including Dean Quinton, cast member of the hit Channel 4 Show 'The Island Bear Grylls’, award-winning TV and radio presenter Remel London and Jevanni Letford, better known as ‘the cheeky DJ, and barrister and author Hannilee Fish. They will also be entertained by award-winning singer Sharlene Monique Morris.
The students and teachers attending will also share their stories and talk about the impact that attending a Rocking Ur Teens event has had on their lives.
Founded in 2015 with the mission of connecting teens for a positive and vibrant future, Rocking Ur Teens has held five conferences to date, welcoming over 1,000 boys and girls aged 13-14 at its annual single sex conferences. Over the next five years it aims to host these on a global level with a view to forming a revolutionary teen hood. Conferences focus on self, collaboration, career and making a difference.
After attending a Rocking Ur Teens event, one teacher commented: “Students were blown away by the experience, they thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing and the opportunity to network and experience new ideas.”
Rocking Ur Teens’ founders said:
“Today’s world is an exciting but challenging place to be a teenager. We are delighted to have welcomed over 1,000 teenagers and teachers at our events to date.”
“Our conferences bring together teenagers from across the country to inspire them, connect them and celebrate their uniqueness. We bring to life the realities of various careers, so that they can start to map out their own journeys. We hope the students will leave walking a little taller, feeling inspired and equipped with the confidence and skills they need to be the best they can be.”
