The Lowdown

When: 4/29/2010 - 5/15/2010
Where: Australia Wide
Costs: Zilch!

What’s involved?

The Inspire Foundation is seeking community organisations to partner with us to run ‘Youth Action Workshops’ as part of our Youth Action Project.
The Youth Action Project aims to work in partnership with a range of youth services in WA, NT and Tasmania to deliver workshops between July – September this year!!
  • The workshops are designed to guide your young people through identifying issues that are important to them and for them to explore different ways of taking action on these issues.
  • Following the development and planning of ‘short action projects’ during the workshops young people are then supported through the process of taking an action over a 3 – 8 week period.
So who are we looking for?
Any youth service in WA, NT and Tasmania that works with young people between the ages of 14 - 25.

Why should people do this?

For your young people, the workshops aim to have the following outcomes:
  • Increase their knowledge and awareness of ways to take action
  • Increase their skills in project planning, goal setting and using technology
  • Build an increased sense of agency and confidence to take action and effect positive change.
For your organisation:
  • We're adaptable. The extent of your involvement as a partner organisation is flexible, with various opportunities for you to be involved throughout the planning stages
  • We're all about partnership. We want to work with you and adapt the workshop resources to meet the needs of your service. The idea is to complement your existing projects and strategies
  • Each organisation that we partner with will receive support and training from the Inspire Foundation
  • No extra costs! We'll provide all the relevant technology to participate in the project. 
Check out some of the workshops from last year!
