AVM learning & development day: Engaging Young People Through Social Action
Why is it important that we involve young people and how does the #iwill campaign aim to support this?
Using input from their research with young people and insights from the Youth Social Action Survey you’ll hear about what young people want to do and how to get them involved.
Hear from young people who are #iwill campaign and vInspired ambassadors who’ll speak first-hand about why they got involved in social action and how you can involve young people.
Followed by Q&A Session with the #iwill campaign.
Understanding the DofE AAP licence, how to get involved and working with DofE volunteers
Over the last two years Girlguiding has delivered two pilot projects that sought to bring more young people into the organisation through delivering social action. One project focussed on working with the National Citizenship Service (NCS) giving their graduates opportunities within Girlguiding, the other gave increased access to social action in local communities through the Uniformed Youth Social Action Fund project (UYSAF). The presentation will discuss the two different approaches and the outcomes and learning from both that have enhanced the experience of the young people and the development of growth work nationally.
We’ll hear from The Medway Youth Trust on their inspiring ways to engage vulnerable young people from the East in social action opportunities to improve the local community and develop employability skills.
We’ll wrap up the networking session explaining the six quality principles of high quality youth social action provision with the chance for you to spend time ideas on paper from what they’ve learnt throughout the day.
Please note: Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day but lunch will not be, instead delegates are encouraged to bring their own or to purchase it from food vendors close to the venue.
