What we do

The steering group is focused on the younger members of the federation. The Forum was formed in 2010 as a way for younger members to have their voices heard within the organisation. It is made up of the finalists of the Junior Member of the Year competition plus an elected representative from each of the NFYFC Areas. In 2013, the NFYFC Youth Forum became the fifth Steering Group on the NFYFC Council.

They also enjoy a Youth Forum Residential weekend away every year - and the latest one was to the Isle of Man where they took part in archery and abseiling.

Youth Forum members are also involved in the British Youth Council (BYC) which allows them to give their opinions on issues affecting all young people in the UK.  

What have we done?

  • Working with FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) to develop a field to fork educational resource, called 'Watch that Cowpat'.
  • Buried a time capsule to help celebrate the 80th anniversary of NFYFC.
  • Added the Tall Ships sailing trip to the YFC Travel programme.
  • Created the Supermoo keyring.
  • Helped to promote Farm Safety with the Farm Safety Foundation.
