Community of Faith Conference for Paid Workers 2020


Community of Faith Conference for Paid Workers 2020

It is increasingly important that our children, family and youth workers are equipped to work with children and young people with diverse gender identities. Given our increased awareness of the high levels of gender based violence, harassment and discrimination that young people in Scotland currently experience, it is important to work effectively within and around gender injustice in our society, 

This residential conference will bring theology, social norms and youth work practice together. A variety of styles of session will include workshop based learning, plenary discussions and informal group conversation, while an emphasis on creating learning communities will help enable delegates to learn from each other's experiences. There will also be time set aside to reflect and relax together creating a vital network of support which will hopefully last well beyond the conference itself.

An extra introductory session is available from 10am until 12.30pm, before the main conference starts, for anyone who hasn't explored the topic before or wants a refresher. This content was covered at the conference in February 2019.
