Youth Voice 2018

Start time: 10:30

Location: Court Hotel, Stirling University , , FK9 4LA

Sign up today for the biggest event of the year for BB seniors and young leaders!
 
This is the first national event of its kind for some time will take place at Stirling University on Sunday 25th February. This will be a chance for BB young people to help shape the future of BB, share experiences and ideas, make connections and take advantage of various skills training workshops (including First Aid, communications and mental health).
 
2018 is Scotland's 'Year of Young People' which makes it all the more important that The BB hears from its young people - what you want to see, what you would like changed and what issues matter to you.
 Thanks to some funding from YouthLink Scotland, we have been able to reduce the cost to £10 per young person.  We hope that, where necessary, battalions can support young people to attend the event. We anticipate other costs involved, particularly for those travelling the longest journeys.  Some support for transport and accommodation for young people who are travelling the longest distance (> three hours) is available.  (Please contact Niall Rolland at BB SHQ about this directly).

It is not essential that the Battalion runs their own competition to allow entrants for the Scottish event, although many use the Battalion one to choose runners for the March date. If you haven’t entered the competition before, or if it has been some time since the Battalion did, please give some consideration to entering teams for the 2018 event.
