Issues for Venturers resource pack

Our brand new issues-based resource for Venturers and Venturer leaders is ready and available to download here!

We know that many Venturer leaders find it challenging to address difficult and challenging issues with 13 to 15 year olds in Woodcraft Folk.  This resource has been designed to help explore some of these issues which concern young people at a level they can relate to and learn from.  We hope it will give you ideas and confidence in educating for social change.

The resource comprises 36 session plans split into 3 sections; exploring myself, exploring our community, and exploring our world.  It covers issues such as bullying, mental health, sex and relationships, financial literacy, sexualisation, gender and the media, democracy, power and powerlessness, and human rights.

Each session has been set out with a warm up activity, one or more main activities, and then some discussion points with timings given as a guideline.  Many of the sessions need extra activity sheets, activity cards or additional information to be given out and these are available in the accompanying activity sheets.

We really hope that you find the resource helpful and inspiring and we’d love to hear what you think of it!
