The Queensland Branch Youth Council has been hard at work setting up for the year ahead and preparing for our upcoming Forums! Here is an update from two of our four patrols:

The Collingwood patrol of the Queensland BYC have been working nonstop on important topics which affect every Youth Member. Currently the patrol is surveying, debating, deliberating and consolidating ideas around what information youth should receive and how they should receive it. The patrol has already collected a tone of data and and we hope to produce useful recommendations that benefit the entirety of Scouting. Collingwood patrol aims for Youth involvement at all levels of Scouting and encourages anyone thinking about taking on a leadership position to give it a shot and try your best! ~Collingwood Patrol.

Jindalee patrol for 2016 is fortunate enough to have members across all sections. We are made up of 2 rovers 3 ventures and a scout. We also spread across Queensland from Brisbane and the gold coast to central Queensland. Currently we have been working on challenges that will how how we want to run the council and how we want our patrol to function. Our aim for 2016 is to continue working well as a patrol to provide outstanding topics for consideration of Queensland Branch. ~ Jindalee Patrol

The Branch Youth Council cannot wait to get out into Scouts Queensland and see everyone at our Forums coming up in the year at events such as Triple S, Agoonoree and Night Hawk.
