The committee meets five times a year in Manchester and it’s area of work includes events such as the BMC Youth Climbing Series, the Student Safety Seminar, three good practice lecture series, and regional youth meets.
TYC produces a range of publications such as the forthcoming Hill Walking Essentials DVD
, and good practice posters for climbers and walkers. It is also responsible for implementing the BMC’s Child Protection policy.
Membership of the committee is voluntary and the BMC cover member’s travel expenses. If you would like to know more, please contact TYC's secretary Jon Garside
