The Young people involved will be Volunteers. Bognorphenia offers opportunities to continue developing in the long term and has a strong coaching ethos. Young Volunteers donating time with Adult Support which will link to the wider community which can be incredibly rewarding and will create connections with the people around them and build new relationships and job opportunities. Bringing local people together: A key feature of the event is to facilitate the coming together of young people from a range of backgrounds through the medium of music, arts and performance. Young people will also connect with other young people on the day through both attending the event and also through the collaborative process of planning and delivering the event. This will also facilitate intergenerational connections and provide an arena for young people to work with other partners including the people of the community, family, friends, colleagues and neighbour’s and young people.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We believe that young people can make all the difference to their communities and their lives through the power of volunteering. When young people discover what they care about, and are empowered to do something about it. We refuse to see any young person, no matter their circumstances, as anything other than an asset. Volunteering enables them to make a positive difference in their communities. It not only boosts their confidence and expands their social circle, it enhances their life skills and future employability. There is a lot of negativity around the young in some towns but this is away to give them an insight of how there future could be and also decide what they want for themselves and we are here to guide them and help them to achieve their foresight for the future the best we can.
Steps to get it done:
Bognorphenia also provide workshops for the younger children for free things they have made to take home with them and we also include them in a workshop where they make things for the event. This means when they join us they will see the part they have been involved in to make a successful event which includes all ages families friends community groups and volunteers.
