Youth Committee

Celebrating the Year of Young People 2018 and International Youth Day, the Scotland Malawi Partnership Youth Committee is an exciting new project involving 10 young people from across Scotland with links to Malawi.

The Youth Committee will help us to create, plan and coordinate a series of events and competitions to help promote and develop the historic links between young people here in Scotland and in Malawi.

The Committee will run from September 2018 until January 2020.

Have a look at the video below where Gemma, our Youth and Schools Officer, will tell you a bit more about what the Youth Committee will get up to, the benefits of getting involved and how to apply.

 

 

How will the Committee work?


 

MEETINGS

We’ll have regular meetings at various locations across Scotland so that as many people as possible can attend. If anyone can’t be there physically, we’ll include them virtually using Skype or Whatsapp.

EVENTS

There are a certain number of events that are already planned in. These include things like the Youth Congress which you may have attended this year. 

COMPETITIONS

Aside from these events, the committee will have a lot of freedom to come up with some exciting ways of getting young people involved in the Scotland-Malawi link, like competitions or conferences.

SKILLS

Throughout the time that the committee runs, we’ll work with its members to identify any skills or knowledge that they want to develop to make sure that they get the full benefit of taking part.

COMMITTMENT

Don’t worry if you’re not sure you can commit to the whole time, we will be able to recruit new people to take part if someone has to leave.
