David's Strasbourg Study Session
David Scott (1st Crumlin BB) recently attended a study session in Strasbourg, north-east France, called: ‘Next Step: Taking youth participation and intercultural dialogue to the next level’, organised by European Fellowship and FIMCAP Europe.

The study session took place at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg from 16th to 23rd October 2011 and aimed to empower participants to be involved in the leadership of multicultural projects in their youth organisations, with specific focus on intercultural projects that promote youth participation.  Attending the session were 32 young people from 12 different countries, representing 13 youth organisations.

David has returned with many new ideas and approaches for youth work, which will help him to develop Boys’ Brigade Northern Ireland (BBNI) Under 26 Group ‘‘BB Connect’, which empowers, develops and connects young people throughout BBNI. It aims to retain, equip and support the young leaders of the Brigade and allow them to help make the decisions which shape the Brigade now and in the future.

He concluded that “All in all, it was an inspiring, challenging and empowering experience, which he would highly recommend to all young leaders, as it broadens perspectives and increases knowledge of effective youth work’.

The European Fellowship comprises Christian youth organisations from all over Europe. By uniting, serving and supporting them, the European Fellowship will assist its member organisations to accomplish their mission with young people in church and society.
