Did you Know?
The First YFC Club was formed in 1929 in the Pembrokeshire village of Clunderwen, with the Wales Federation established in 1936.
All YFC Clubs are affiliated to one of twelve independent County Federations and are ran by a network of volunteers, supported by a varying staff team at a County level, depending on funding and membership numbers. Each Club operates with an officer team; including a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treauser and Secretary, all of whom are within membership age and are elected at the Clubs Annual General Meeting. Each club is required to run democratcially following the rules of a standard constitution and provide a programme of activities that the young people are responsisble for developing and delivering.
YFC County Federations
County Federations provide a programme of activities for YFC Clubs to be involved in and these are managed through a series of Sub committees. Members are also elected to represent their Clubs views on the governing Federation committee; the County Executive. In a similar vien to County Federations, Wales YFC provides a programme of services and overarching support to all Clubs and Counties in Wales. This too is managed through a network of sub committees and the governing body; Wales YFC Council.
