Young Leaders' Network
We are thankful for the very active and hard work that has been done through BB Connect in recent years and we are now ready to build on that. Having looked at other models of Under 26 programmes in BB and other organisations and taking the views of our under 26s into consideration a number of new approaches are being developed. The programme of the Under 26s has been re-branded as Young Leaders' Network. Feedback from our Under 26s indicated quite strongly that they would prefer events and initiatives to be run in their Battalion. With this in mind we will continue to support and encourage Battalions to run an Under 26 Programme which has participation in decision making a core element.
Further work is in progress to establish meaningful, effective ways of including the views of our under 26 members in decision making at NID level. It is hoped the review will help us support, encourage and deliver active networking and participation in decision making by young people. If you have any queries or would like any help with an Under 26 Programme in your Battalion please contact David.firstname.lastname@example.org or Alison.email@example.com
