Description

Youth Scotland Leaders Forum and Annual General Meeting

This is the inaugural gathering of a forum for leaders / managers of Youth Scotland member groups. We have also extended participation to invited colleagues from the wider sector who have participated in our Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) "Leading in Youth Work" Programme. The Youth Scotland Leaders Forum offers leaders the chance to participate in a learning network, where they can:

  • Network and share practice

  • Engate in training on topics such as fundraising, enterprise, business development, governance and management skills

  • Discuss issues impacting on the running of their youth groups / organisations

We have been successfully running leadership courses and seminars over the last few years but now, in response to requests we have received, want to officially launch our Youth Scotland Leaders Forum on Thursday 24 October 2019 in the Grassmarket Community Project, Candlemaker Row, Edinburgh at 4.00pm - 7.30pm

Programme:

3.30pm - 4.00pm Registration for Leaders Forum, refreshments

4.00pm - 6.00pm Presentations and discussions

These will be led by national voluntary sector leaders: Pat Armstrong, Chief Executive of the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations ( ACOSVO); Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), Neil McLean, Chief Executive of the Social Enterprise Academy (tbc); and Michelle Cook, Head of Scotland at the Institute of Fundraising. These inspiring colleagues will offer their thoughts on leadership and the subsequent discussions will provide practical advice and support on leading your organisation and also signpost you to other help and resources. We will also undertake an interactive Training Needs Analysis to help inform our training/seminar offer for the Youth Scotland Leaders Forum over the next year.

6.00pm – 6.30pm Networking buffet

Get to know your fellow leaders of Youth Scotland Member Groups and other colleagues from the sector. This will be great chance to share ideas, compare notes with others doing similar work and get inspiration for your next big thing!

6.30pm – 7.30pm Youth Scotland AGM

We hope you can join us for the Youth Scotland AGM. This will be a short focussed session incorporating a brief presentation on the new Youth Scotland Strategy for 2020 and a musical performance by the young people from The Big Project, a member youth group from Edinburgh. All Youth Scotland Members will receive further information on the AGM and voting procedures. Non- members are welcome to attend as guests and to learn more about the work that Youth Scotland is doing.

We look forward to welcoming you to this inaugural gathering of the Youth Scotland Leaders Forum.
