The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) voluntary 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. Why is this?
This free event will:
- examine the context in which organisations are operating
- examine whether the services on offer help young people to succeed in a competitive education and labour market
- 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.
Henry Bonsu, Simon Wooley, Young Mayor Tanvir Raza, British Youth Council Trustee Zain Awan and Jeremy Crook OBE
Speaker and workshop topics include:
- The young person’s perspective: what do BAME young people need and what is preventing greater social mobility?
- The organisation perspective: the challenges facing the BAME sector
- How to ensure the supply of services is matching the demand from young people
- How to capture impact and change of our services
- How to get more young people involved in the planning and management of projects
- Building on our success and our collective social capital
