Youth Forum Activity Day Jan 2022

8th January 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

2022 is an important year for Mersey Weaver as we focus on development, growth and re-connecting with one another. To achieve our aims for the next year we know it is important to give young people the opportunity to have their voices heard and recognised; as well as spending time outdoors and with peers from outside of their group and section..
To support this we will be hosting a series of Youth Forums open to all Scouts, Explorers, Young Leaders and Network members in Mersey Weaver hosted by our District Youth Commissioner, Jake. The next Youth Forum is Scheduled to be on Saturday  8th January at 10am – 3pm
Please book on by the 7th January.
Who Should Attend?
The Forum is open to all youth members from Scout Troops and Explorer Scout Units and Network in Mersey Weaver. We encourage any one regardless of age, ability or role to come along and give your views and input.
