Innovative action based learning and developing youth leadership skills
The workshop will have participants both engaging in and delivering ABL activities. The purpose of the workshop is to focus upon clear communication and developing confidence and leadership skills.
Each YMCA workshop facilitator will deliver an ABL activity to a small group. The group will discuss and plan their delivery of the ABL activity and deliver to their peers. Time will be allocated for the groups to discuss pros and cons of the approach taken and what improvements could be made if any.
This is an activity the YMCA Raise Up coordinators deliver in schools to Year 13 leaders and has proven to be effective. Developing both confidence and leadership skills in young people, the activity is enjoyable and interactive. Youth workers will be able to replicate within their own practices and an ABL activity folder will be provided for participants to take away.
