The Junior Focus Committee (J.F.C.) is made up of two representatives from each group within the project. They meet once a month.
This committee enables the members of the project to have an input on the running of the project and provides them with the opportunity to feed back anything that their fellow group members have raised.
The J.F.C. have undergone peer led committee skills training each year, where new members are trained on the skills required to be a member of the committee, for example communication skills, chairperson, secretary and treasurer roles and also the responsibilities of being a member etc.
In the past the members of the Junior Focus Committee have volunteered their time for various activities within the project such as the Open Day, Santa’s Grotto and Presentation Night. They have also been on many recreational and educational trips such as visiting the Scottish Parliament building, Training residential’s at Loch Lomond and Calendar where they camped in Tepee’s and put the camp craft training they have participated in to good use.
The committee have also been involved in fundraising activities such as running a tuck-shop at the Lanarkshire Young Voice of the Year awards and Bag packing at Morrison’s. These funds help the committee to purchase equipment suggested by the group members as well as financing the residential’s and trips that they attend.
The JFC recently took part in more team building activities as the committee has new members and structure has changed. They decided to have an hour of in-house training and then went to an escape room in Glasgow. (see below for pictures) 😊
