It enables young people to have their say on the development of Snow-Camp’s programmes, support Snow-Camp fundraising events, discuss any issues they face in their communities and 2 young people work alongside our Board of Trustees each year.

Available to young people aged 16-21. Young people need to complete the First Tracks, Graduate and Excel Programmes to be able to join the SCYF. 

If you are a young person who is currently participating on our Excel Programme and are interested in joining the SCYF, please speak to Will to find out how.
