Positive Community Relationships programme for Post school organisations
Religious intolerance, sectarianism, racism and more recently radicalisation are issues that directly affect young people in Scotland. The Spark believes that by exploring these issues we can foster understanding and tolerance for differences in the community.
The Spark’s Positive Community Relationships programme provides an important platform for discussion around how our values and beliefs can define and influence our behaviour.
Positive Community Relationships programme objectives
This programme sets out to achieve the following:
- Provide a safe environment for young people to discuss values and beliefs, and their impact on behaviour
- Provide a tool kit to empower young people to challenge negative attitudes in their communities
- Motivate young people to promote positive change and celebrate diversity in their communities
- Engender positive engagement between young people, their peers and the communities they function within.
Positive Community Relationships programme delivery
The programme is targeted at young people between the age of 15 and 25, who are in secondary school, further education or seeking employment. Delivered by our Children and Young People Team (CYP) via group workshops, each session lasts 60 minutes.
