This year the finalised topic is ‘How do young volunteers make an impact; at home and overseas?’ Using the World Café method, we will explore various themes within this such as:
- Short term vs long term / Community vs individual
Differing objectives and impacts.
- Global Citizenship and impact in the UK
How volunteering overseas often leads volunteering within your own community and taking responsibility/being more socially conscious/aware etc.
- The role of young people as volunteers in development
What it means to have young people volunteering (rather than discussion on whether it is a good thing or not).
- Volunteer to career
Personal development and opportunities for young people to learn grow and build social conscious careers and personal lifestyles.
