Standards of Personal Behaviour within Young Farmers
YFC prides itself on giving young people the opportunity to learn and develop as good citizens and responsible members of the community. YFC should be an enjoyable experience and promoting positive behaviour is essential to the smooth running of any activity. This provides a foundation for the running of our clubs, reduces the likelihood of negative behaviour occurring, and ensures that activities are fun, engaging and safe for everyone. Members of YFC have an important role in supporting one another to manage their own behaviours and to make positive choices.
