Autumn 2010 September 6th - Dec 23rd

Charity No: 1060012 01905 340246

Worcester Action for Youth Way is a registered charity and has been operating throughout Worcester City for fifteen years. Way is staffed by a part time project manager, a part time administrator, a part time quality evaluator and a number of sessional activity workers. Way is fortunate to have an active management committee which provides substantial support to the project in terms of leadership and financial advice and guidance. The project manager has a key responsibility to raise funding in order to maintain Way’s activity. Without the generous support of a number of local funders, the activity sessions provided would diminish. Way has a quality assurance system and the QA evaluator makes regular visits to activities to ensure that what we provide meets our standards and supports young people to achieve. The activity workers provided for Worcester City Youth Groups add value to those youth work sessions that already exist. The sessions can be utilised to support accredited learning outcomes for young people, as well as open up a range of new and exciting opportunities for them. We ask that all youth groups booking sessions read carefully the guidance on pages 4 & 5 about how best we can work in partnership to provide the complementary work that will add value to your youth work activity; and support the growth and development of well rounded young people.

Directory of Activity Workers Bookings are invited from Youth Organisations operating in Worcester City and working with the 11 – 16 years age range. Bookings are FREE of charge within Worcester City. Bookings outside our age group and area are welcome, but a charge of £50 will be made per 90 minute session. Each booked session runs for 90 minutes, double bookings are welcome and last for 3 hours. Each Activity Worker states their availability to accept bookings. For a one off booking it is always worth checking with the office the availability of a worker even though the Directory does not include the day or evening you require.

Carrie Sermon

I use hand on activities and blend arts and crafts, music and drama with cookery to understand an event or concepts such as Pancake Day or Chinese New Year.

I am a flexible, versatile person who can provide a programme tailor made to your needs! If you have an idea but do not know how to make it reality I ’ m your woman! I can deliver cross-curricular activities around a theme and blend issues such as multi-culturalism or self esteem with arts and crafts. I love to use junk and recycled materials! I have a great deal of experience working with Special Needs groups as well

The most important aspect is that it is fun and meaningful and includes activi-

as mainstream groups and of all age ranges.

ties generated by the young people. A discussion of a topic may inspire the young peoples ideas and understanding. I always ask for suggestions and use to this to help plan for future sessions. Delivery: can be delivered as one off activity or series of workshops Maximum number young people: people 10 – 20 people

I also work with the calendar and look for events that occur within the seasons and key events and dates, such as Divali or Wassailing. Also any particular dates such Holocaust Day.

We have recently recruited some new Way activity workers, and as soon as I am able I shall forward information about them to you.

How to Book your Way Activity Worker Before booking an Activity Worker please consider how best the workshop will fit into your current programme of youth work. As you know, young people generally vote with their feet, so please involve them in the process of choosing who to book as well as when to book the activity. If you want a series of workshops to produce an end product consider best how to fit this into your planning cycle, and book well in advance. Unsurprisingly Way activity workers are snapped up rather swiftly by discerning young people. Please remember the age range .

( see page 4 ) Thank you for

your support.

We have foregone the form, and now favour e mail, it is quick, cheap and usually efficient. If you do not have access to e mail ring us and leave a message and day time number and we will ring you back.
