Low Cost, No Cost Youth Work

Low Cost, No Cost Youth Work by Vanessa Rogers

This compendium is an A to Z of exciting activities that cost little or nothing, except for time and enthusiasm, and so is perfect for the credit crunching times we find ourselves in. The activities will encourage, energise and motivate young people.

Environmentally sound, good fun and encouraging team work, each of the 101 activities has already been tried and tested by practitioners to ensure that they work. It is divided into five categories:

  • icebreakers
  • energisers
  • craft activities
  • problem solving
  • team games

Each activity provides a resource list, clear instructions of how to do it and an estimated time of how long it will take. There are also suggestions for adapting the ideas to include young people with disabilities and those needing more targeted support. A notes section for each activity means you can personalise this resource with your own evaluations, learning outcomes and useful variations.

A5 format; 86 pages. Please note: you will need Adobe Reader to access this e-book.

Low Cost, No Cost Youth Work is only available as an e-book from the National Youth Agency, and is not available as a hard copy.
