Brief bio: tell us a few facts about you & your interest in digital aspects of work with young people
I'm managing a large youth centre in rural Wiltshire, so I'm keen to engage through SNS and online work with hard to reach, isolated young people. However, I am very interested in using the benefits of SNS to publicise events within youth centres and other activities to young people in a way they can interact with. Hopefully this may increase participation, and could lead to young leaders taking a peer education program online, along with a youth council online.
I'm currently studying at Brunel Uni for my Masters in Youth and Community work. 1 year done, 1 to go. I hope to write my dissertation on SNS and young people; don't quite know how to frame it yet, so if you have any ideas please get in touch.

Thanks for that; your youthworktoolbox website looks useful, particularly the podcasts.
We're looking at going with Mailchimp as it's very user-friendly and very much integrated with social media which is a major plus.
I currently use Awebber for my email campaigns.
It's a paid service, but after my research, it seemed to be the best option for me.
I also have a mail chimp account, but I have never used it.
Awebber was not too difficult to set…"

BackgroundOne of the challenges of assessment processes with young people is how to secure their involvement and active participation. Only too often assessment can become something that is ‘done’ to young people (or a form that needs to be filled in), rather than a dynamic process that puts them at the centre, something theyare involved with and have some ownership over. The assessment tools called ‘CAF Cards’ and ‘Road Sign Cards’ have been developed with young people to work with the…See More
