What is a Young Minds section? 

A Young Minds section is a self-organised student organisation, which is hosted by a university or a research institution. It comprises at least 4 members, as well as a section advisor. The advisor must be a permanent staff member of the host institution, serves as a local mentor whom the section can consult, and ensures continuity in the work of the section.

These Sections offer many benefits to their members and the local communities:
