YANC is an organisation that brings together professionals delivering across the youth sector in Wales to share best practice and resources. YANC is an embryonic network which started life in response to the youth arts sector lacking any sort of cohesive thinking and sharing of practice across Wales. Initially the network was formed on the basis of various companies who were initially involved in a project. However this quickly grew as there was a genuine appetite amongst practitioners and organisations alike to develop practice and networks pan Wales. YANC has now become a genuinely pan Wales network which involves both Welsh and English speaking companies and individuals. It regularly hosts skills and practice sharing workshops across Wales as well as its biennial CASGLIAD conference.
Together we are stronger – and our collective voice is louder. YANC is an open network that welcomes new members, from freelance practitioners to large organisations.
As well as benefitting from the networking and sharing as a member of the network, membership offers discounts to YANC events across the year, such as regional gatherings, skill sharing events, and CASGLIAD conferences.
Membership is annual and commences in April 2017
