Throughout May, June and July 2o19, the Youth Voice staff team met with and recruited 17 young people to join Youth Voice 2018/19. These young people were from Birmingham, Coventry, Sheffield, Newcastle, Hertfordshire and Birkenhead. From the 17 new recruits, 11 attended Youth Voice induction training in July 2019 to become the newest trained members of the Youth Voice team.
All 11 young people completed activities and tasks across 3 days, designed to enhance and develop their skills around team building, public speaking, motivation, active listening; as well as building confidence. All young people completed an OCNWM accredited qualification in Communication and Research skills, which was designed to complement the training course.
Across the 3 days, Youth Voice recruits were asked to work in teams to discuss and overcome barriers; research a project and present to the wider group; support one another with a buddy task; and push their comfort zones but most of all they were their to HAVE FUN!
Well done to all new recruits!
