A range of activities, games and challenges for young people aged 12-19 in partnership with Coin Street
The Young Leaders promoted and ran a youth zone for young people aged 12-19. The zone had a range of activities including a DJ, music and media workshops for the young people to gain and enhance their skills. Along with team building and communication challenges and games.
They planned every element of the youth zone in their fortnightly youth forum meetings, including who they wanted to involve, how they wanted to set up the space, wording for the flyer and the risk assessment.
Coin Street promoted the event using flyers and social media, and young people on the youth forum promoted the event to other young people that they knew.
The team worked really well together and were supported by the staff and sessional workers from Coin Street.
Each young person was given a passport to complete to show that they had tried different activities. People then swapped their passport for free chicken, rice, salad and chips.
The event shaped the advice and suggestions to Coin Street for their summer plans – eg. using the basement of the neighbourhood centre to set up a temporary youth club, in a very similar way to the youth zone, in order to run sessions throughout the summer. The passport encouraged the young people to try new activities and come out of their comfort zone.
