Youth Action Participation Plan

What is it? The Youth Action Participation Plan Workshop 

When is it? Monday 26th of July 2021 from 2pm-3:30pm 

Where is it? Zoom. Book via Eventbrite

How is it? Pretty good, thanks for asking!

Do you want to get young people more involved in your service, but feel like you don’t know how to do it? 

Does it feel like a risk you don’t know how to navigate? 

In the first section of this event the speakers will be giving insights into their work and how they involve young people, followed by a short Q&A.

Afterwards, we will split into breakout rooms to talk about times you’ve found it difficult to engage young people in your work. The speakers (including a young person engaged with their work) will help troubleshoot and offer specific support on integrating youth voice into your work.

The idea is that you’ll come away with a Youth Action Participation Plan (YAPP, for short) with ideas tailored to your organisation’s needs and direct actions that you can go back to your organisation and implement!

Youth Voice is a valuable tool, and we hope this workshop shows you how you can take that tool and use it for yourselves!

Access: All of our events will have automated closed captions.

The speakers of this workshop have years of experience in engaging young people and involving them in services and service offers/provision at various levels within their organisations.

Importance & impact of youth involvement

July 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Youth participation is a difficult cliff to traverse, and can feel hard to do in a way that meets an organisation's needs and those of the young people too.

Do you want to hear from young change makers and activists about their opinions on how to make opportunities accessible for young people?
