Event description

Description

Join Platform Mcr and GMYN at Wythenshawe Forum Library on 2nd February 2018 for basic youth work skills training.

This training opportunity is aimed at anyone who works for or volunteers for community organisations such as community arts organisations, youth groups, advocacy groups, faith groups, or proactive residents. Maybe you sometimes work with young people already and want to gain some skills and confidence, or maybe you would like to engage more young people in your activities.

We are particularly keen for volunteers or staff from community groups based in Wythenshawe to attend.

Light refreshments will be provided.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Working with young people, youth work values and understanding the needs of young people

  • Building appropriate relationships with young people, managing boundaries, observing safeguarding practices and creating safe spaces.

For anyone who takes part and is inspired to follow this up with a more thorough training course or can’t make this event entirely, GMYN deliver a six session ‘Intro to Youth Work’ training programme. Please email myrtle.finley@gmyn.co.uk to request more info.
