British Cycling National Youth Forum

Applications for the 2017/18 National Youth Forum are open until Friday 28th April 2017.

If you are part of a Go-Ride Club, have achieved or are in the process of achieving the CAYV Gold Award and can bring enthusiasm, new ideas and a drive to further the sport, British Cycling want to hear from you.

The Role

The NYF is a group of 12 young people from across the country, who take on important projects related to the progression of cycling in the UK. It’s a fantastic environment to take your volunteering and leadership to the next level, trading skills with the other reps and British Cycling development staff to gain valuable experience.

On joining the forum, representatives will form small working groups to lead various projects supporting the HSBC UK Go-Ride programme within British Cycling. This will involve splitting wider projects into manageable tasks, working together to organise meetings and keeping in touch regularly.

In addition to driving forward this important work, the forum also provides challenging and highly relevant training in the form of workshops and events that will help you develop skills for life.

The Commitment

Four meetings annually and representatives are also asked to attend and contribute to one of the HSBC UK Go-Ride Conferences:

  • July 2017, Manchester: A two-day meeting with an overnight stay, packed with introductions & activitieS, our first formal get together as the new NYF.
  • August 2017, Leeds: A one-day meeting to catch up and continue working together on projects.
  • November 2017, Birmingham: A one-day meeting to further develop projects and experience different workshops
  • January 2018, London: A one-day meeting to review project progress and plan for the future
  • A HSBC UK Go-Ride Conference: Dates and venues to be confirmed, where we ask each representative to attend one of the spring conferences.

All meetings and reasonable travel/accommodation costs are fully covered. We ask all members to be available for these meetings in order to contribute to ongoing projects.
