Dyfodol y Ddraig
Dyfodol y Ddraig is a bi-lingual Youth Forum in Wales for young women between 16 and 25. Dyfodol members represent the views of young women within their counties and serve a term of three years. Every county should have at least 2 representatives. We discuss issues that affect young women within and outside guiding e.g. violence against women, Girls shout out report and specific Welsh issues etc.
We take the information that we have discussed to our counties, so we can get their opinions. This can either be formed by Junior Councils or private Facebook groups. The Chair of Dyfodol y Ddraig now sits on the Strategic Management Group which gives her the opportunity to voice the opinion of Dyfodol members to the committee. Each Dyfodol member is given the chance to express her own opinion and is encouraged to bring discussion topics from her county as we want to make sure that the views of the Welsh members are heard. We have been involved in many different events e.g. Annual Review, Senior Section Weekends, Young Friends, Royal Welsh Show etc.
Every county should have an active Junior Council as it is the way of getting the voice of the county’s 14 to 26 year old members heard.
