The Youth Commissioners’ Challenge 2017-18

On 5th May 2017, James Nehual, Ian Hill and Mathew Milner met with The Lord Mayor of Leeds and Candleighters to discuss how we could all support each other

Fast forward 4 months and we had the Youth Commissioners’ Challenge.

A joint birthday celebration, 5 years of Child Friendly Leeds Initiative and 110 Years of Scouting. Supporting two incredible causes directly helping Young People in Central Yorkshire, Candlelighters and our very own Scout and Guide Unit in the LGI.

One Year on and over 1,300 people have completed the challenge making a monumental difference to both amazing causes.

We cannot congratulate every single Young Person and Volunteer enough. You have made a truly remarkable difference, and one that should make us all very proud to Scout in Central Yorkshire.

We don’t have a YCC planned for 2018/19 but please do keep us updated with all the amazing Social Action going on in your communities!

Then keep your eyes peeled for 2019/20!

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
