Youth Forums

The Snow-Camp Youth Forum (SCYF) is for young people who have completed our Journey of  Programmes as it provides volunteering and work placement opportunities to encourage the young people to stay fully involved in our work and to help them gain work experience.

SCYF members represent Snow-Camp at our own fundraising events and participate in annual industry shows and festivals. They are also encouraged to develop fundraising and small business ideas to support the growth of the SCYF and the charity. There are also opportunities for the young people to volunteer and use their Snowsport England/Scotland Level 1 Ski or Snowboarding Instructor qualification on our Programme Journey.

The SCYF celebrates its successes each year by giving out two prestigious awards, which its members are keen to win:

Youth Volunteer of the Year – for the most hours volunteered

Snow-Camp Young Person of the Year – as voted for by their peers

We are passionate about giving young people a voice and are committed to empowering young people to become creators and not just consumers of our services: The SCYF is run entirely by its youth members, with Snow-Camp staff attending for support, and each year two of the SCYF members sit on Snow-Camp’s Board of Trustees as youth representatives.
