Youth Participation Workshop now available!

youthparticipation June 20, 2014

Participate + Influence = Change

This workshop will provide practical training and advice for adults working with young people in a wide variety of sectors including local and national government policy developers, funders, clinicians, service managers, youth and community workers.

The workshop will give participants information on what youth participation is and is not, how to implement youth participation in their work and enable participants to consider ways to ensure young people are having a real say and influence over decisions being made in policy development, programmes, services, organisations and in their day-to-day work.

The workshopmwill also provide participants with a 'Youth Participation Toolkit' which they can use as a practical tool in their day to day practice further helping to strengthen youth participation in their work/organisation. It will also include active learning experiences giving participants the opportunity to work through some of the skills and techniques it highlights.

This training has been developed from the research, skills, knowledge and practice in the area of quality youth participation developed in Foróige, the National Youth Development Organisation, over the last 60 years.
