July 2019 Update

Your monthly update from the DYW West team.
Mythical Millenial Conference

This month, we were in attendance at the Mythical Millennial Conference in Edinburgh. We were amazed with the talks and performances on stage from organisations like Balfour Beatty and Project Scotland, as well as special performances from Intercultural Youth Scotland. Did you know, that in 2020, 50% of the workforce will be made up of millennials?

The Recruit
The Recruit participants were challenged to create promotional videos for Greenpower F24 team Inver Racers, which would help them fundraise for the upcoming International Final at Silverstone. The winning team, Too Fast Too Furious, created a crisp and on message video which can be seen here!
If you want to see the rest of the teams' videos for yourself, head over to our Facebook Page!
DYW Sharing Day
The DYW Sharing Day was held at the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce with DYW regional groups from Ayrshire, Glasgow, Lanarkshire & East Dunbartonshire and Edinburgh, Midlothian & East Lothian.
The aim of the day was sharing best practice from different regional groups to improve our service and operations as much as possible!
