The Core Network is a local network of young people working collectively to support youth services and other young people in their locality through volunteering, social action and training and events. Young people will have the opportunity to engage with other peers, gain new skills and experiences and support the delivery of programmes and activities in their communities.
Our target age range is young people aged 14-18. Members involved in the scheme will help set and achieve the goals of the network with youth worker support. Young people will have the opportunity to contribute to the charity through their involvement such as supporting youth worker interviews, contributing to consultations and regional/national agendas, supporting with positive activity delivery, running fundraising events and undertaking training events for other groups.
Young leaders can earn “Core” credits for taking part in events or participating in leading activities by ITMP, these can be transferred into positive activity / trips or other forms of entertainment decided by the group.
The programme puts young people at the forefront of what we do and ensure they not only have a voice but are fully participating in our services helping to shape and design services that are relevant to young people but also excites and engages them now and in the future.
