Barnado's has made the video with young people at their Base project in Whitley Bay as the Government is considering raising the school leaving age to 18.
The charity took the video and youngsters from Base to the Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem party conferences. Among teenagers attending the Barnado's events are Norman Stephenson, 17, from the Palmersville project and Pauline Surtees from Base. Norman said: "It's important the views of those it will affect are taken into account."
