Shaping Participation: sharing practice for a stronger youth-led future

Event date: 
20 February 2014 - 10:00am - 4:00pm
Event location: 
Regent's University, Regent's Park, London

Woodcraft Folk and NCVYS (the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services) are bringing together many youth organisations and colleagues from the co-operative sector for a free day of workshops and discussions on the theme of youth participation. It will be a brilliant chance to find out how other organisations involve young people, and celebrate all the ways Woodcraft Folk and NCVYS empower younger members. As TREE's final big event, we also hope it will be a chance to look back on five years of exciting development work and hand over our learning and resources to Woodcraft Folk's team of highly skilled volunteer Ambassadors of Youth Participation!

This PDF includes work by a range of different Woodcraft groups, committees and teams, towards a range of Big Plan ambitions. It was displayed at Annual Gathering 2013 in celebration.

Experience of group night activities, camps, projects and commitees has a really positive impact on children and young people in Woodcraft Folk. 

Below you can download a summary of what young people told Cadence, our external evaluators, about the impact youth participation in Woodcraft Folk has had on them. The survey was conducted amongst young people who have experienced either activities run at a local or camp level supported by TREE resources, or activities run by the TREE team themselves:
