Working Principles

What is expected from a CYF program?

  • Empowered volunteers through defined roles & responsibilities

  • Events and classes with agendas and with assigned leaders running different sections

  • Interactive events and physically active activities that encourages the participation of all students and attendees

  • Interaction with students and attendees is organized in smaller groups that promotes collaboration and discussion

  • Feedback is encouraged from all students and attendees by the end of the event

  • Social spaces are created and fostered where people can meet, discussions are essential in any class or event

What we want to avoid having:

  • Transactional classes or events without interactions, discussions, fun or community aspects

  • Classes and events where attendees are sitting all day

  • Masterclass/boardroom/lecture atmosphere and dynamics

  • One person controlling all the agenda and leading all day

  • Volunteers being told what to do on the day
