Over the past few months young people from the Myplace Steering Group have been learning volunteering skills.
Youth worker Suzanna has been teaching the young people how to plan, prepare and evaluate activities. The young people have also learnt how to approach young people and positively work with them, as well as taking on-board important pointers on health and safety.
More recently the young volunteers have put their skills into practice; to plan, deliver and evaluate a youth work session with the Junior Youth Club.
The young volunteers decided to put together a smoothie making activity, which was a success.
The volunteers showed their younger peers how to safely prepare the fruit, match flavours and (some of them) also helped to tidy up!
The junior group really enjoyed the activity and have asked the volunteers to come back and do a cooking activity in the future.
