4. Curriculum development opportunities

vym bubbleWork with key partners such as Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to offer robust academically based policy & practice workshops around key current issues, such as outcomes and impact, participation, and governance.

VYM has been a member of the Institute for Youth Work and since the disestablishment of the Youth Service has sought to be the standard bearer for quality youth work, in partnership with others.  To this end we will extend our work with practice-related partners, such as MMU to develop the Most Significant Change impact assessment tool and GMYN to support the training of volunteer youth workers.  We will also strive to develop quality gender specific youth work through the Boyswork Network and Feminist Webs.
