What is Wmff!?

SNAP Cymru is offering a fun and unique opportunity for young people from across Wales to get involved in the Wmff! project at this exciting time in its growth and development.

Wmff! is a bilingual Smartphone app that went live in December 2012, designed exclusively for young people by SNAP Cymru, Wales’ leading parent partnership organisation. Wmff! aims to encourage young people to seek support and advice for themselves and covers a number of key areas identified as being important in their lives. The areas covered include bullying, exclusions, getting back into education, finding work and young people’s rights.

The app has been designed and built by Galactig, a North Wales based digital creative agency. Young people have been heavily involved in the design and development process from the very beginning. Gwirforce, a panel of volunteers aged between 14 to 25 helped choose the winning supplier and it was through consultations with young people in North Wales that the name Wmff! was decided upon.

What we’re looking for?

We’re looking for bright, passionate individuals, who want to make a positive difference in their schools and local communities. Ideally, you’ll be 14 – 25 years old and in education, training or employment. You’ll need to be a confident communicator, who has the ability to inspire and connect with other young people.

What are my responsibilities?

As a Young Ambassador, you will be responsible for spreading the word about Wmff! to young people across Wales. From time to time, you will need to attend events to represent and promote the Wmff! brand.

What’s in it for me?

As a young ambassador you will:

  • Be part of an exciting and growing project.
  • Have the chance to influence local and national policy affecting young people’s lives.
  • Meet and socialise with other young people in the Young Ambassadors Network.
  • Have access to plenty of training opportunities and a chance to develop key skills.
  • Have a great addition to your CV – great for college and university applications.
