Two youngsters were handed control of key Royal Borough jobs on Friday as part of the national Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day.
Erin Kyle-Davidson, chairman of the borough's young ambassadors, became director of children's services, taking over from Alison Alexander, who acted as a mentor to the Furze Platt Senior School student.
Vice-chairman James O'Connor took over as projects and programme manager with the help of Danny Gomm and the Claires Court sixth former was landed with the responsibility of choosing the summer programme logo which will be used next year.
Chris Caughey, young participation and early intervention co-ordinator for the borough, said: "It's very important that young people have a say in youth projects and they have a fresh take on ideas.
"It gives them a voice.
"We hope to make it bigger and better next year and get more professions involved."
