Click through to Woodcraft Folk's big collection of Activities for Pioneer groups

 

Pioneers are aged 9 - 12. If you're looking for activities for younger children, or older young people, you might find plenty of these are suitable, with a bit of adaptation to the needs of your group. 

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!

International Negotiations and unfair resource distribution
