Young leader training 20th June 2022

Please see this opportunity for young leader training, its online and its only 90 minutes on 20th June 2022.  Sponsored by The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, this was brought to our attention by our DofE Coordinator Richie Clarke

To mark Volunteers Week in June, our monthly Empowering Communities Good Practice Workshop is all about how to work successfully with young volunteers. Teenagers under 18 can be a brilliant addition to your volunteer team, bringing new ideas and energy to your project but what's a good way of recruiting from this age group and how is working with them different to supporting adult volunteers?

We will be joined by our local Duke of Edinburgh Awards team who will explain how they are expanding their work in this region and how this will increase the number of young people looking for placements.

Georgie Sheward. Operations Officer for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award says:

" The DofE currently has a network of over 3,000 Licensed Organisations, including local authorities, schools, youth clubs, young offenders institutions, businesses and national organisations such as the Guides and Scouts, with the support of an army of over 40,000 volunteers. We want to inform local voluntary and community organisations of the many ways they can engage with young DofE volunteers. In turn this enables us to improve access to meaningful volunteering opportunities and high-quality activities for young people doing their DofE."

We will also be joined by local and community organisations who already work with younger volunteers and they will be sharing their ideas and experiences of working with this age group.

There will also be opportunity for a wider conversation about the opportunities and challenges of working with young volunteers breakout rooms .

This free workshop is brought to you as part of the Empowering Communities partnership.
