Knowing the Needs, Providing the Services; Getting it Right for Young People
A FREE 1-day conference organised by the Black Training & Enterprise Group (BTEG)
The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) sector has a long track record of supporting young people in areas such as personal development, education, leisure, information, advice and guidance.
However, despite the support offered, many young BAME people are still not making sufficient progress on the social mobility ladder that we all want to see. This free event will ask - and try to answer - why this is.
The event will:
- examine the context in which organisations are operating
- examine whether the services on offer fully meet the needs of young people
- explore practical ways in which the BAME sector can involve young people in shaping services in the future.
The event will be a combination of inspirational speakers, interactive and practical workshops and a ‘Question Time’ session with prominent panel members giving you an opportunity to ask questions directly.
Speaker and workshop topics include:
- The young person’s perspective: what do BAME young people really need and what is preventing social mobility?
- The organisation perspective: the challenges facing the BAME sector?
- How to ensure the supply is matching the demand
- How to capture impact and change
- How to get more young people involved in the planning and management of projects
- Building on our success and our collective social capital
