National Youth Education Event
The National Youth Education Event is the coming together of young activists over the course of a weekend to meet colleagues old and new, learn new skills, share their experiences and have a positive impact in the way that the union communicates and interacts with its young members.
THE NEXT STEPS
The weekend will give participants the enthusiasm, confidence and tools to go back to their branches and deal with the ever increasing pressures on their union time.
The weekend will enable participants to join a growing community that is CWU Youth. They will leave the event knowing that they have support not only from their branches, regions and head office, but also a large national network that is there to help and advise should situations arise that require it.
KEEP COMING BACK
The success of the weekend has seen young activists return year after year and they are very welcome. It is not just a one-time only event - keep coming back. There is always something new to learn, someone new to meet and 12 months of experiences to relay back to colleagues.
Who pays for you to attend?
Each year branches are informed of the cost of sending someone to the event. This figure includes:
* 2 night's accommodation
* Breakfast, lunch & dinner
* Plus all the sessions in between!
Branches will also meet the cost of any travel & subsistence involved
