Our Ambassadors come from various backgrounds and they meet weekly at the Emmanuel Church, Vicarage St. Deane, BL3 5LE.

The Bolton Interfaith Council recognises the value of working and engaging with young people. Young people can make a tremendous contribution towards a peaceful and harmonious society.
Hence, our partnership work with schools & colleges is very vital for our future
We also have the BIYA project which has now been in existence since 2007, supported by volunteers & lead by the Strategic Officer - our group consists of all the girls from various faiths at the moment. The group meets weekly at Emmanuel Church. The project aims to give members an opportunity to work with all faiths, get involved in wider community events through dance, drama, public speaking, organising charity events, supporting community groups & much more.

During 2013/14 our Young Ambassadors took many steps forward with number of discussions, presentations, recruited new members - hence the group is now made up of almost 21 members.
We had an excellent "Team Building" Residential at Windermere for four days. During which the members bonded well together, had a full learning session on "Equality" and fun day spent at YMCA activity centre. There was some serious work which needed team thinking and working
together to get through the tasks. All members were fantastic with their input and made us all very proud.
The year ended on a high with the celebrations on 19th December 2013 for the 6th Anniversary since the group was set up. The Mayor of Bolton, Mayoress and many guests from the community and Voluntary sector attended a memorable evening for the group.
Also we are very grateful to Management of Emmanuel Church, Vicarage St, who have allowed the Young Ambassadors to hold our meetings every week.
Looking ahead, the group have a busy year ahead with following activities already planned:- Take a Bolton Town Hall Building tour with the Mayor, a visit to Bolton News, perform and participate in the fair trade fortnight, spirit of Bolton, discussion and debate - Topics. charity event for children suffering from cancer, public speaking - and much more.
I am proud to say, our members are a credit to the interfaith work in the town and the ability, creative thinking of these girls from all backgrounds is a joy for everyone.
