CHANGE IS AFOOT AT THE NYC
The National Youth Council (NYC) is set for a big year of Scouting ahead with a whole lot of new changes afoot to ensure Scouting remains an inspirational leadership organisation led by youth.
The first change is just around the corner, with new NYC members being voted in welcomed in March this year at the Council's Autumn Conference. This Conference will be an exciting event, with an international guest and a giant dinner with the Queensland Branch Youth Council and Queensland Team.
The key role of the NYC this year will be to instigate change, as it works in conjunction with the groundbreaking Scout research that is emerging with Stage 4 of the Youth Program Review. The NYC is constantly looking at rejuventating Scouting, and plans to make recommendations on key topics that have been raised for research by the Movement. These topics include important issues like developing youth spokespeople to represent Scouting; creating Youth Involvement Models; analysing the Community Service week concept; exploring the International Explore Belt Buckle; developing suggestions for 'My World 2015'; reviewing the Venturer, leadership and UM courses; developing the NYC Guide to the Patrol System for AJ2016; and much more.
A reminder to all, to complete the My World 2015 survey http://vote.myworld2015.org/?partner=SCOUTSAU. This will be critical to being heard by the United Nations as they set the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
