Youth Focus: North East recently developed a working partnership with Generation NE to explore how we could collectively develop an initiative to support young people within the Generation NE programme. An issue that was highlighted both locally and at a national level is that of ‘attitudes and behaviors’ of some young people particularly in relationship to their ability to sustain attendance on programme, training or employment.
Over recent months Youth Focus: North East supported some of our Young Trainers to co-design and co-deliver a number of new activities which could provide solutions for new competencies such as; resilience, determination and working within realistic goals. Last week the Young Trainers piloted their programme with 6 young people from the Generation NE programme and upon reflection, the programme has been a success. Youth Focus: North East and Generation NE will now explore how the programme can be further developed to reach more young people across the Generation NE programme.
