The Youth Advisory Horde* for Belfast Flying Shoes!

What is it?

Starting in 2017, YAH-BFS is a one year commitment for individuals ages 12-21. YAH-BFS members will attend Belfast Flying Shoes board meetings and be copied on BFS board emails. At meetings, they will offer their valuable perspective on board actions and decisions. (If YAH-BFS members choose to take on any additional role in BFS work, the board welcomes that participation.)

What next?

If you’re interested, complete the “Be a BFS Volunteer” form, including your age, and return it to us. We will accept applications until November 4, 2016. In November, we’ll select the first YAH-BFS team from that pool of applicants and we’ll introduce the YAH-BFS team at our December dance (BFS’s 11th birthday party!). You can submit your form in person, at a dance, or electronically via [email protected]

*Youth and Advisory are self-explanatory, and in case Siri isn’t available, a Horde is a teeming crowd or throng, a great multitude, a swarm… which captures exactly the fun energy we are looking for in this new group.
