We have now recruited our ten Youth Committee Members!
The Youth Committee was launched during the 2018 Year of Young People, with the Scotland Malawi Partnership committing to an exciting new project involving ten young people from across Scotland with links to Malawi.
The role of the Youth Committee is to help us create, plan and coordinate a series of events and competitions and help promote and develop the historic links between young people here in Scotland and in Malawi.
The Committee was formed in September 2018 and will run until January 2020.
The team is currently busy working on the co-design of our Youth Congress, bringing lots of exciting and fresh ideas to our February 28th event at the McEwan Hall.
How the Committee will work?
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.
There are a certain number of events that are already planned in. These include things like the Youth Congress.
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.
Throughout the time 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.
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.
