Facilitator training for YLTW 2014 is being held this week in Bellingen. We have 16 students attending learning the skills required to run a YLTW Congress locally. We are very pleased with the level of attendance and interest in this year's facilitator training for the Mid Norh Coast with many youth from Bellingen and Coffs Harbour included in that number. YLTW in Bellingen and Coffs Harbour on 3 4 5 June 2014 are promising to be very vibrant and dynamic.
