Warren Centre: Youth Managers
We are excited to announce that we will have a new centre mid-late 2019- The Warren Centre Youth Action Innovation Hub! As always, this centre’s development is being led by young people.
As part of the development of this new centre, we have an amazing group of young people steering the direction of the centre – The Warren Centre Youth Management Team.
The group formed in December 2018. They are steering the activities that will take place at the centre, addressing issues raised by young people and the community.
They received their first training with Community Organisers, supporting the group to develop community organising skills such as community listening and action planning with the community in January. This is a national project supporting young people across the country to develop these skills and we are excited to be part of it. As part of this wider project, the group will be attending a residential in July to share practice, learning and their successes with the 100 young participants.
They are also having a residential in February 2019 to continue their training before conducting peer research and consulting the community until the end of March.
The aim of the centre is to be a specialist in youth action, providing a space for young leaders, activists and volunteers to develop skills, support each other regarding their well-being and community belonging and a place to plan and lead their own projects, campaigns and events. It will also enable them to share best practice with each other and other organisations.
If you know any young people who might be interested in also joining the group, or who might want to run their own activity or campaign get in touch with Ellie.Rudd@fya.org.uk
