Event description

Description

As we are now into the final year of the commemorations of the centenary of the First World War, we want to ensure that communities will continue to cherish and protect local war memorials beyond November 2018. Recognising that young people are the custodians of the future, this workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to engage with school and/or youth groups to encourage them to find out more about their local memorial. Led by the Learning Officer at War Memorials Trust, the workshop will help you discover:

  • The best ways to approach a school/youth group

  • Ways of linking activities to the curriculum

  • Different types of learning activities that can be carried out with school or youth groups

  • Resources available online

  • Community stories and top tips from volunteers who have worked with schools

Although the workshop will use examples of activities relating to war memorials, the content of the workshop will be applicable to those wishing to engage with schools and youth groups with other types of heritage too.
