Young Fundraisers

Working in Partnership with Funding For All, the Young Fundraisers project has been developed to skill up young people in fundraising for their clubs and groups. The course is open to young people (this is not just for young women) aged 14-25 and will run in various districts around Kent. The project is part of the commissioned work of the Stronger Kent Communities consortium. There are four phases of the project:


1. Peer education training and fundraising expertise

Young people will be trained as peer educators and also by fundraising experts in all areas such as:


• Presentation and communication skills

• Managing groups and discussion

• Listening and feedback skills

• Greater awareness of their attitudes and values and how this impacts others

• Organisation and planning

• Problem solving and using effective strategies

• Team working

• Evaluation skills

• Community fundraising

• Grants and trust applications

• Working with corporate partners


2. Organising fundraising events


Young people will be divided into groups and organise 3 fundraising events for the clubs they represent. They will use this experience to design workshops to relate their knowledge to their peers.


3. Delivering workshops


The young people will then deliver their workshops to other groups with the hope of inspiring their young people to do their own fundraising.


4. Mentoring other young people


The Young Fundraisers become mentors to other young people as they put on their own events or complete applications.


The peer educators will learn valuable transferable skills which can help with employment and CV building and they will gain more self-confidence from the experience. They will be accredited with units of the Pearson Level 2 Award in Peer education and will have experience of both community work and volunteering. The course will be delivered in true Youth Central style with lots of food, games and fun.


Clubs and groups will benefit from the funding raised by young people and may have some more willing volunteers to help sustain the clubs and groups.


How long is the course?

The programme will run over 26 weeks

The first course is in Thanet from 11th October 2017 6pm-8pm at The Gap Project, Queens Road Baptist Church, Queens Road, Broadstairs, Kent CT10 1NU but will then move to other districts such as Ashford, Swale, Canterbury, Dartford, Dover and Gravesham.
