See My CLD
The See My CLD project is an opportunity for Youth Highland to work with our member clubs to raise the profile of the great work that voluntary clubs do and the positive difference it makes to communities in the Highlands. Youth Highland are working in partnership with other Area Associations and Youth Scotland to raise the profile of current CLD Regulations Nationally. CLD stands for Community Learning Development and anyone working in a youth work setting is a CLD practitioner. Through this project we will be offering member clubs the opportunity to better understand the underpinning values and principles of quality CLD work and the opportunity to access training and support to improve practice. If you want more information about the project or wish to be involved please contact us at email@example.com
Christie Fullerton, our Project Officer is working with a group of young people to develop a peer education training package which will be delivered to other young people and professionals in Spring 2015. The project is working in partnership with specialist organisations (Brook, Crew 2000, Youth Action Team, Waverley Care, Women's Aid) to increase young peoples knowledge and understanding of risk taking behaviour. Young people will be supported in developing resources and training sessions around sexual health and substance misuse. The sessions will be offered to member clubs and will aim to be fun, informative and accessible whilst raising awareness and knowledge and preventing risk taking behaviour by young people in the Highlands.
Participation - Recognising Young Peoples Achievements
Rhiannon Elder is our Participation Officer. Her job is to help voluntary clubs assist young people in gaining awards and recognition for the great work they do. If you are interested in knowing more about Dynamic Youth Awards, Youth Achievement Awards, Saltire Awards or John Muir Awards please get in touch and we can help you help young people get recognised for what they are doing. We aim to host 3 celebration events a year which bring member clubs together to celebrate and showcase the great work young people are doing voluntarily in clubs all over the Highlands. If you want to know more please contact Rhiannon at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sustainable Youth Project
We are now heading into the third year of the Sustainable Youth Project. The project aims to support practitioners to improve the standard of youth work in the Highlands. The project has enabled us to develop our training programme to offer increased youth work skills training to our member clubs. We have been able to extend the programme to offer training in Introduction to Youth Work, Community Development skills, Awards for young people, CLD and a nationally accredited PDA in Youth Work.
The Sustainable Youth Work project has also enabled us to offer increased opportunities for young people from member clubs to access opportunities through our activities programme, participation programme and other regional projects.
