Young Leader Training
Do you want to help out more at your youth club, group or project or maybe you just fancy finding outt more about what it's like to be a youth worker? Then this is for you! You’ll take part in 6-8 sessions where you’ll find out about all sorts of aspects of being a youth worker from finding out what young people are interested in right through to planning and running your own activity!
There are lots of organisations working with young people in Hampshire but how do they know if they‘re ’young person friendly‘? They get a CAT Mark done! Young people like you are trained as CAT Mark assessors; the training lasts about half a day, and then with your support workers you go out and assess the organisation. If they meet the criteria you award them a CAT Mark. You also give them useful feedback to help them make their service more ’young person friendly’.
Want to be a CAT Mark Assessor? Complete and return the form to us and we'll get in touch about how you can training and become part of the team.
