Practice Sharing Open Day for Youth Work Practitioners

"Using Speaking & Listening Skills to Empower Young People"

Are you working with young people aged 10-19?

Are you looking for ways to encourage them to express themselves and voice their opinions? 

Over the last two years, the Salmon Youth Centre has developed a model for empowering young people through improving their speaking & listening skills. We would now like to share our experience, pass on what we have learnt to other youth workers and informal education settings and receive your feedback and insights.

This day will include:

  • Presentations on how to use music, art and public speaking as a tool to improve young people’s speaking & listening skills;
  • Workshops in the music studio and around public speaking;
  • Discussions;
  • Speeches by young people.

Please follow this link to register for the event. 
Places are limited and registration closes on Friday 25th April.

About the Salmon Youth Centre

The Salmon Youth Centre is regarded to be a flagship youth centre for the voluntary sector. For over 100 years, it has provided a place and purpose for children and young people in Bermondsey in the inner London Borough of Southwark. Located at the heart of its community, Salmon holds a record as one of the longest continuous serving youth centres in the UK.

At the Salmon Youth Centre, we encourage healthy lifestyles in young people, focusing on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. We also give young people space to explore their creativity through dance, drama, music and visual arts. Last but not least, we inspire and support young people to develop ambition for learning and work.

We welcome around 500 young people every week. Our doors are open to all young people between 6-25 years. Our aim is to build long term, life-changing relationships through regular social interaction. Every week, we run seven open access clubs and over 20 specialised clubs.

We have recently been recognised as an outstanding youth centre and were awarded the PQasso Level 2 quality standard for third-sector organisations.
