Just starting out in Youth Work?

Explaining the Foundations

In the video gallery below you will find a group of explainer videos. The explainer videos explore the foundations of youth work, particularly in a group context for mental health and wellbeing programmes including setting up, check – in and ice breakers, creating your group contract, meeting your group where they are and closing your session. On this page you will also find a free to download Programme Plan.

Planning with the Toolkit

Below is a free to download Programme Plan which was designed by Mary’s Youth Club. You can either download and deliver exactly as in the document, or use the document as a template springboard to help you design your own programme plan using the recourses throughout the toolkit.
