Supporting the Bailiwick's Young People

Provisions and Projects

OUTREACH

Our Outreach teams work with young people wherever they may be, and on their own terms, to build relationships and provide opportunities based on identified needs of the young people themselves. It is perhaps one of the more challenging aspects of youth work that the YC delivers, as it requires heightened capability, knowledge and confidence on the part of youth workers to bridge the gap with young people who are in their own space, at a time and place of young people’s choosing. Our teams attend weekly sessions at some of the Island’s estates (such as the Genats, Bouet and St Martin’s), as well as at popular meeting points such as the Bathing Pools, Bus Terminus and Half-Way. They also attend Alderney’s Quarry Parties, Guernsey’s summer shows and other customary events such as Liberation Day and Seafront Sundays.

The Youth Forum is a group of young people from across the Bailiwick who represent the views of their peers and issues important to young people. The Youth Forum engages with business and community leaders, senior civil servants and politicians.

 

The Youth Forum’s primary focus is to provide a voice for young people within the community, and to ensure that young peoples’ voices are heard by those making strategies and decisions, including the 2016 States Election.

PROJECT WEEKS

The YC introduced this new provision at the start of 2015. Project Weeks: aimed at providing young people of secondary school age with intensive low ratio intervention and skill building. These week long activities are focused on key areas of our curriculum. Projects are driven by the needs of young people from across Guernsey and Alderney with young people selected onto Project Weeks through a referral process. These are concentrated weeks, often done as residentials (Tile Barn in Hampshire). Themes for these weeks have included: creative video making, arts, upcycling, photography or healthy lifestyle choices. Each project creates new friendship opportunities and positively pushes young people out of their comfort zones.
