Practical techniques for engaging Young People – Training Seminar

Encouraging young people to take an interest in subjects that could be seen as boring or not for them is notoriously challenging.  However it can be done, and this training seminar, led by Youth Cymru and Grow Wild, will show you how.

Using the Grow for It! funding programme as a practical example the two organisations will demonstrate how a youth engagement programme focused on wildlife and nature has been successful.

The session will include:

  • Making your project relevant to a younger audience
  • Communicating with young people – the dos and don’ts
  • Making the most of social media
  • Identifying partners
  • Keeping young people safe – what you need to know

The event is free to attend but you will need to book (see below)

Who should attend?

Community groups, environmental organisations, residents groups, museum and visitor attractions or indeed anyone who would like to engage with a young audience.
