Marc Besford, YCW National President, said: “I am really pleased that we have been invited to share our YCW perspective and mission. The IMPACT Group who are running a workshop will be a fantastic example of how our SEE-JUDGE-ACT method can transform young people into young leaders, grounded in our Catholic faith.”
