YEP Youth Sector FREE Workshop in Katanning: “Creating Safe Spaces – The YEP Youth Sector Guidelines v2.0”

Date & Time
September 7, 2017 at 11:00

Katanning Town Hall
Upstairs Meeting Room

As youth workers, we know it takes a lot of time and energy to build genuine trust and rapport with young people. We know that if a new young person came to our service or program, it’s going to be a little while yet before they REALLY talk to us about what’s going on in their world.

Enter the topic of sexual health and blood borne viruses (SHBBVs) and just imagine how confused, scared, iffy, unsure, and embarrased – but super curious! – this young person could be. They’re not going to talk to us about stuff like this straight away, but they may really really want to.

So, what can we do to make them feel comfortable about talking to us about SHBBV issues? How can we do it?

Come along to our first Katanning Youth Sector Workshop on Creating Safe Spaces, based on The YEP Youth Sector Guidelines on how to make your service/program/organisation more youth- and SHBBV-friendly for young people in our communities.

Date: Thursday 7 September 2017

Time: 11.00am-1.30pm

(light lunch provided)

Location: Katanning Town Hall

Upstairs Meeting Room

Meet the team

Vanessa Vlajkovic

Hi! My name is Nessa and I’m 20 years old. I’m studying Journalism at Edith Cowan University, with a Public Relations minor. I am an avid reader, writer, traveller and cheerleader. I’m also a passionate advocate for the deafblind community, and for other types of disability. I’ve been on the committee of the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) at YACWA for a few months, and through them have developed a desire to become a YEP volunteer, as I want to expand my horizons.
