The Jubilee Centre's new free online course, entitled, Building Character through Youth Social Action begins on the 12th June and is now open for registration. The two week course provides an opportunity to learn about the history of social action, and how youth social action can help build character in young people.
The activities young people do to help others and the environment is becoming increasingly recognised as a way to improve communities and develop young people’s characters. Educational institutions, businesses, voluntary organisations and governments are investing in social action to provide opportunities to young people of all backgrounds. On this course you will explore the historical and theoretical roots of youth social action, and learn how social action can be a journey for young people, helping them build their character and confidence.
This course is delivered in partnership with the University of Birmingham and FutureLearn and is open for anyone with an interest in youth work and working with young people. Active participation is encouraged, with the FutureLearn platform providing message boards and discussion topics throughout the two-week course.
The course runs from 12th to 26th June 2017 – Registration is now open
