More than Volunteering: Active Citizenship through Youth Volunteering
Learning and Skills Network (NJ1)
This pack aims to provide materials to help all those involved in youth volunteering and post-16 citizenship education to ensure that there are some citizenship learning outcomes from these valuable experiences. The pack has been produced by the Post-16 Citizenship Support Programme to help the integration of citizenship education into post-16 education, training and youth work programs. It forms one of a series of publications which the program continues to develop on teaching and learning materials for specific themes. The activities aim to be flexible enough for use in the whole range of post-16 settings including school sixth forms, colleges, work-based training, youth services and community groups. Following an Introduction, this publication divides into four sections. Section A: Volunteering and Citizenship, contains: Activity A1: Volunteering and Citizenship; Activity A2: Why Volunteer?: Activity A3: How Engaged are You in Your Local Community?; and Activity A4: Citizenship Questions. Section B: Volunteering Opportunities, contains: Activity B1: Volunteers Wanted; Activity B2: Negative Opinions, Positive Opportunities; and B3: Overseas Volunteering. Section C: Youth-Led Volunteering, contains: Activity C1: Community Citizenship Project Action Plan. The fourth section contains: Resources from the Post-16 Citizenship Support Programme.
