Welcome to the Parents’ Area of YFYFC
Young Farmers’ Clubs provide an opportunity for young people to develop, to learn and to enjoy themselves by offering a diverse, fun and educational programme of activities planned by members – for members.
Each club is supported by their county federation and affiliated to the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC).
Club meetings are usually weekly and are organised and run by YFC members. The club elects club officers annually to take responsibility for the club on behalf of its members and organise the activities that members take part in. Weekly meetings can range from talks and trips to preparing for competitions or fundraising for charity.
In clubs with largely younger members, there is a dedicated team of adult volunteers who are elected to help support the Young Farmers’ Club members to run the club. All adult volunteers within YFC are screened for suitability using safe recruitment procedures set out in the Safeguarding Policy.
YFC is a voluntary youth organisation and has a duty of care to its members. In order to keep club members safe during YFC activities, each club works to the following policies:
- Health and Safety Policy
- Safeguarding Children and Young People
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Data Protection
- Standards of Personal Behaviour
All paid up members of YFYFC are covered by YFC insurance when attending club meetings, trips and competitions. All clubs have public liability insurance in place.
See the Parents leaflet 2016 for an informal guide on Yorkshire Young Farmers’ Clubs.
