Effectively Supporting Youth-Led Initiatives | YHA Manchester | Friday, 17. May 2019

The Proud Trust has a deep, rich history, of involving the LGBT+ young people we work with in the design and development of our youth provisions, resources, campaigns and organisation overall. We recognise that young people’s voices can be highly effective in bringing about change, especially in spaces that directly relate to them.
For some organisations, however, the juxtaposition of existing rules or traditions and the desire for social change, can sometimes feel difficult to manage. So how do we safely and positively support young people to undertake initiatives that are LGBT+ specific, or LGBT+ inclusive?
This one day training course for professionals will:

Increase participant confidence, encouraging delegates to work with young people to start and maintain, through effectively supporting, youth-led initiatives in their settings;
Offer a set of comprehensive resources that can be shared with young people, helping to support their development of their project;
Enable the professional to think about what needs to be in place to ensure that young people are heard, but also kept safe;
Ultimately support you to give young people skills, experiences and opportunities that will serve them well in their chosen careers.

Participants on this course will go away with a comprehensive set of resources, which are designed specifically to support the development of popular LGBT+ specific and LGBT+ inclusive initiatives, such as:

The setting up of and running an LGBT+ group in their school (Peer Facilitators);
Designing and delivering an LGBT+ awareness campaign (LGBT+ Ambassadors);
Offering a peer support service that is truly inclusive to all (Peer Supporters).

Cost £125* per delegate.
