Timings: Registration will open at 10:00 with presentations beginning at 10:30. The day will close at 16:30.
Working with #iwill campaign this learning and development day aims to showcase the role that young people can play in your organisation hearing from those who are already leading the way in involving young people from across the voluntary sector.
Presentations will include:
What the Research Tells Us
Adam Wilson – Trusts & Statutory Fundraising Executive – Vinspired
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.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s AAP Scheme
Lizzie Usher – Programme & Quality Manager – The Duke of Edinburgh Award
Understanding the DofE AAP licence, how to get involved and working with DofE volunteers
Developing Girlguiding and its young members through social action
Tamsin Fudge – Membership Recruitment Manager – Girlguiding
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 focused 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.
Putting Ideas into Action
Sue Torrison – Assistant Head of Social Action and Volunteering
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.
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.
