City Showcase To Get Youngsters Involved

Teachers, careers advisors, youth workers and voluntary organisations will get together in Coventry next week to look at the role of young people in volunteering.

Hosted by Coventry Volunteer Link, the Young People and Community Activity Conference on 28 March will bring together interested groups from across the city to share ideas and discuss issues.

Workshops will focus on the impact of the Citizenship Curriculum, which has been introduced by the government.

There will also be discussions on methods of engaging young people in volunteering and including them in decision making.

Showcase presentations from Coventry Refugee Centre and Coventry MIND will highlight the benefits of involving young people in the Millennium Volunteers scheme.

Nick Darwen, Project Co-ordinator at Volunteer Link said:

"Volunteering has many benefits for young people - it's a chance to gain new experiences and improve career prospects.

“This conference is about how we can work together to offer young people in Coventry quality volunteering opportunities"

Those attending the conference will be first to pick up a copy of 'do-it today'.

The quarterly newsletter contains information and advice on volunteering in Coventry and will be circulated to schools, colleges and youth clubs in April.

Although the conference is now fully booked, anyone requiring information can contact Mike Jillings on 024 7622 0381.
