What are they?

National Member meetings are a chance for larger, national members to come together to explore common issues and challenges. They are an opportunity for us to explore with you how you can get the most out of your membership of the British Youth Council, look at how we can work in partnership with you more closely and share with you the latest developments at the British Youth Council.

Who will be there?

Young people from all our national member organisations are invited to attend. In 2014 the following members have attended: Boys Brigade, FURY Girlguiding, Methodist Children & Youth, NCVYS, NUS, UK Youth, UNISON, St John Ambulance and The Scout Association.

What do the members say?

Those who attended the meeting in June 2014 said:

  • "Good debate, good selection of organisations, good info and nice to meet new people"
  • "It's good to attend as you get the most of your membership of BYC and get to talk to likeminded young people"
  • "National Members Meeting enable you to be well informed of the issues that affect young people from the other organisations"
