Be helping organisations embed social action in their delivery and wider practice, we’re ensuring the sustainability of high quality social action opportunities in Manchester.
We’ve collaborated with JD Sports to enable young people to understand how their unique talents can be used to help others.
We’ve enabled 57 organisations across the 32 wards of Manchester to deliver high quality social action for their children and young people.
Through our partnership with JD Sports, we’ve created a brand new project for Manchester’s young people, providing social action opportunities.
We’ve recruited 20 young people across Manchester to support and nurture young people in diverse communities to realise their potential.
Young Manchester and JD Sports’ Talent Search will culminate in an all-day showcase event celebrating the positive role young people can play through social action.
Young people have been intrinsic in the decision making at Young Manchester since our inception. We ran a competition to find digitally gifted young people to design and create our website and our logo was made in collaboration with a group of young people. Young people have also been part of panels for Young Manchester during both commissioning and recruitment.
We recently trained ten young people as Community Reporters, providing them with valuable skills and giving them a voice to share their experiences of youth work within their communities.
