With just 8 months to go until the end of the project, we are proud to say that nearly 700 young people have volunteered through the Inspired Action programme and nearly 3,500 young people attended one of our Inspiration Workshops.
To celebrate these and many more achievements, to review our learnings and to launch the final push of our project we will bring together our Inspired Action volunteers, partner organisations, our sponsors and supporters for one final time.
Therefore it is with a great pleasure that we invite you to our Final Learning Event, taking place on Thursday 23rd February, 2017 in The Royal York Hotel.
About Final Learning Event:
The event will focus on sharing the successes and learnings of the Inspired Action. Using case studies and reports from our focus groups, we will evidence examples of good practices but also share areas where further improvement is still necessary.
The event will mark the launch of our Inspired Action Toolkit summarising the main outcomes of the project and providing recommendations for any organisation engaged in youth volunteering.
Young People Panel:
The day will be co-facilitated by young people, who will be showcasing their projects, ideas and experiences.
Thanks to its popularity from last year we will also include a Young People Panel, for the audience to find out directly from young people how volunteering with the British Red Cross has been for them.
Throughout the event our Inspired Action Engagement Workers, together with the young people will be running 4 different interactive workshops. Each workshop will focus on one of our core learnings from the project, such as recruitment and retention of young volunteers or creating partnerships with like-minded organisations.
