SNAPSHOT: Youths today

Radio 1 DJ Trevor Nelson and CBBC presenter Sally Gray (front row, second and third from left) present the Millennium Volunteers of the Year with their awards at a London ceremony last week. The 10 categories included sports, arts, environment, community, youth leadership and mentoring. The National Millennium Volunteer 2002 was Flick Grice (back, fourth from left), a learning partnerships volunteer with the Read It scheme, who has also set up an information centre at Wetherby Young Offenders Institute and a family literacy group. Millennium Volunteers is a Department for Education and Skills initiative that encourages 16-24 year olds to volunteer in the community. More than 90,000 young people have taken part in the initiative since its launch in 1999.
