TheSprout is an interactive website that encourages creativity and direct involvement while providing information on activities and services available to every single one of you, the good young people of Cardiff.
The site operates within your Ten Entitlements (the rights of young people as set out by the Welsh Assembly Government) and is in line with the European Youth Information Charter.
It has been live since October 2007, with our official launch taking place in November 2008 (when we were proud to be the first people to put the Lord Mayor onstage at Clwb Ifor Bach).
In November 2009, theSprout integrated with CLIC, the National Information And Advice Service for young people in Wales. This integration means that theSprout website will continue to be the local website for young people in Cardiff to access information on services and activities, but will also include a variety of national features. Such an integration has enabled young people’s local information websites to be linked, to share best practice and information resources.
The numbers of registered users increase dramatically every month, mostly (we reckon) because it gives you the opportunity to upload your own content and see it live.
An Editorial Group aged between 11-25 meets monthly and are responsible for writing, reporting, photographing, designing, promoting and anything else they feel should be included. They also make decisions on content and technical changes.
