You’re Only Young Once

YOYO stands for You’re Only Young Once. Over the past two years, YOYO has worked with pupils in South Yorkshire schools to produce videos and podcasts on important issues.

All of the content on this website has been written and produced by YOYO students in classroom workshops.

Dr Alan Billings

Dr Alan Billings is the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner elected by the South Yorkshire public.  You’re Only Young Once (YOYO) is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s campaign.

The Police and Crime Plan for South Yorkshire has three key priorities two of which are protecting vulnerable people and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. The YOYO campaign aims to protect young people and allow them to make choices in their lives that will limit their chances of becoming either a victim or an offender.

Through allowing the young people to voice their own key messages, the Commissioner can understand what the priorities of the young people are on key subjects and allow them to educate their peers, families and professional contacts using the power of media.
