Take 5 with Stuart Jamieson @SAYFC @stuartajamieson - what 5 words would Stuart use to describe YFC? #yfcdoitbest

YFC in 5 words according to @SAYFC vice chair, @stuartajamieson - Excitement, fun, socialising, challenges, confidence #yfcdoitbest

Q: When did you first join YFC?

I first joined Young Farmers when I was 15 years old, encouraged by other family members and friends who were already members of SAYFC. I joined Belhelvie JAC, my local club and have enjoyed every minute since.

Q: What is the strangest thing you have had to do within YFC?

 

Having been a member for 14 years, I have found myself in a whole manner of strange situations - from being dressed as a giant budgie in the districts entertainment evening to teaching 1500 Norwegian young farmers traditional Scottish dancing at their national 4H camp.

Q: Describe your YFC career in five words

A:

  • Excitement
  • Fun
  • Socialising
  • Challenges
  • Confidence

Q: What makes YFC different to any other youth organisation?

A: SAYFC is an entirely peer led organisation, giving the individual members complete control over how the association is run from club level right up to national.

 

What does the future look like for YFC?

Q: What does the future look like for YFC?

 

A:The future of SAYFC holds challenges as well as much to look forward to.

 

We recently lost £60,000 of government funding, so making up the shortfall will always pose a challenge.

 

We will however continue to invest in member services and while our membership continues to grow as it has for the fourth consecutive year, the future looks bright.

 

We are introducing some new international travel experiences starting with a ski trip in January 2017 and our agri and rural affairs group is going from strength to strength, with a record number of applications for the two week study tour to New Zealand in November 2016.

 

All in all, a great deal to be excited about!
