Fun, Learning, and Achievement

YFC members can now learn more about how their club functions in a new Curve training module called Fundamentals.

The course, which can be delivered at club level by NFYFC trainers, aims to explain what makes YFC different to other youth clubs and why it needs a constitution.

The 1.5 hour course will help you to understand how YFC works as a charity and how to make the most of your club.

Club Officers from Leicestershire and Rutland FYFC participated in a pilot of the Fundamentals Curve module as part of their Club Officer Training Weekend.

Emma Lovegrove, County Organiser from Leicestershire and Rutland, said that the officers found the course very useful.

“Some of our officers had never seen the Constitution let alone read it! Members now have a greater understanding of the Constitution and its importance. As trainers we also learnt a lot too! Many of us didn’t know that associate members should be elected into the club or that County Organisers should attend Club Advisory meetings.”

Emma said she would definitely recommend the course to other YFC members. “The constitution is a difficult topic to get members excited about but it’s a really important one, like many Curve modules, the Fundamentals one educates member in a fun and enjoyable way.”

The Fundamentals course is one of 19 Curve modules that YFCs can deliver on a club night. The courses are all around 1.5 hours each and can be delivered by an NFYFC trainer in your county.

If you are interested in running the training session in your YFC, contact your County Office to find out who your nearest NFYFC trainer is or contact Josie Murray for more information.
