WMP Youth Forum
First meeting and information session TUESDAY 9th NOVEMBER 6.30 pm online
West Midlands Police Commonwealth Games Engagement Team is offering young people aged 13 to 21yrs the opportunity to join monthly online Youth Meetings – the ‘WMP Youth Forum’. They want to hear your views on the policing activity that you may see at the Commonwealth Games and how this impacts you. You will be able to ask questions and to learn about what goes on behind the scenes. They also want your ideas to help create social media posts aimed at informing other young people.
The meetings will be online and everyone is welcome! Register below for the opening information session to find out more.
If you want to know more but don’t meet the age requirements then please still get in touch as you could still share your ideas or take on a role to help host the meetings.
Go For GOLD
Improve your skills, experience new cultures and make a long-term impact.
From joining campaigns to end violence against women and girls in Malawi, to encouraging young leaders in Latvia – GOLD empowers young women to work in partnership with other guide associations around the world. It’s great for our GOLD teams, who have fantastic adventures overseas, and it’s great for the guide associations too.
GOLD has been working with member countries of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) for nearly 25 years. So far, we’ve given over 600 members of Girlguiding an adventure of a lifetime.
All members aged between 18 and 30 can apply.
To create a well-rounded team, we’re looking for a range of experience and skills, so don’t worry if it’s your first international experience! Being enthusiastic, organised and able to adapt to new situations are all important qualities when working on GOLD.
GOLD can also be unpredictable – so you’ll need to be able to keep your cool in the face of change.
There is a travel bursary you can apply for, so don’t be put off by travel costs to Go for GOLD as this could be covered for you.
You can find out more information about GOLD of the Girlguiding website.
