Last month Woodcraft Folk pilotted the New Group Journey - a new online training resource for new groups and new volunteer leaders. The resource is the first step in creating an accessible training format for our thousands of volunteers.
Following additional funding from the National Voluntary Organisations in Scotland Fund, Woodcraft Folk are now looking to add to its online training resources by creating two new modules:
Woodcraft Folk’s TREE programme has reached the end of its funded period, after 5 years of useful resources, fun activities, diverse training and the active engagement of young leaders. The TREE programme engaged 4,360 young people in a wide range of activities including:
· Action projects
· Right to Refuge campaign
The TREE programme, which ran from 2009 to 2014, supported young Woodies aged 10 - 18 to have their voices heard, to take on new roles and challenges, and to learn new skills such as communication, facilitation, decision-making and many forms of leadership.
Although funding for the work has currently finished, empowering young people is still very important in Woodcraft Folk. Here you can download a list of TREE's main messages for Woodcraft Folk - please read, remember and act on these!
Helpful information for anyone who wants to champion young people's participation at all levels of Woodcraft Folk. Created from a weekend's training activities run by the TREE team for young people from Districts all over Woodcraft Folk.
Please share with your group and help them give young members a voice and influence at every level of Woodcraft Folk!
