Youth work and researcher training took place at IARS International Institute’s offices across three days: 17th, 18th and 24th April. 7 members of our youth advisory board participated, as well as 7 students of local schools and universities.
Each training session consisted of two hours and gave an overview of YEIP, methods of working with young people and conducting youth-led research.
All of the young people were given an extensive reading list for homework and more information to make sure they were ready to start work!
Finally, members of the young researcher team will meet on the 9th May to reflect on their learning and prepare their focus group and interview techniques.
