Facebook Competition

From 19th of January to the 2nd of February we invited all Branches & Groups to post a photo or video of their youth activity to our Global Youth Week Facebook Event page. The photo or video with the most combined impressions (like, love, etc.) will be declared the winner with the winning Branch/Group receiving an article in the Scottish Country Dancer.

Submissions have been tallied and we are going to post the results this week, so please stay tuned.

Branch Youth Development Grants

The Youth Services Committee is offering three £500 Branch Youth Development Grants - one grant each for the three best proposals on how the Branch will build youth engagement. 

Please download the Development Grant Application Form here.

This document both outlines the aims of the grants and explains how to apply for them. The deadline for applications was 31st December 2017, midnight GMT and submissions are now closed.

All RSCDS Branches can apply for this funding. Affiliated Groups are not eligible to apply. This funding is not for the use of individuals, but for the development of youth initiatives by a Branch for the benefit of young people in that Branch. It could be a joint initiative between neighbouring or twinned Branches.

These grants are not available for covering the cost of a one-off activity such as a stand-alone event. The aim is to use this money for a longer term impact of either attracting new young people to the Branch or developing the engagement of young people already within a Branch. Please do not apply simply for the running costs of one event.

Spring Fling: The Movie

From April 15th to the 17th 2016 Spring Fling touched down in Edinburgh and the RSCDS was on hand to film the festivities. Happening each year during the third or fourth weekend of April, Spring Fling is one of three premier events the RSCDS holds over the course of the year.

Last year Spring Fling was held in London, and in 2017 it will be heading to Bonn, Germany and with planning underway we are looking forward to welcoming you all for another fantastic weekend of dancing.
