X-HALE 2020 Training for youth workers & volunteers

We are now taking bookings for our free X-HALE 2020 Training for Youth Workers and Volunteers!
 

What's Involved?

We want to bring down the number of young people smoking in Ireland smoking and we want youth organisations to join us in supporting our young people to become the first tobacco free generation.
This innovative free training day is designed to accompany X-HALE Training, our smoking education and prevention resource for use with young people in formal and non-formal education settings.
The training and resource will provide you with the knowledge, skills and materials needed to tackle smoking issues in your setting and facilitate a range of smoking topics in an engaging, interactive and participatory way with young people, both smokers and non smokers.

Each participant will receive a free copy of our X-HALE Training resource and lunch will be provided.
 

Who is the training for?

  • If you work or volunteer with young people aged 10-24 in a youth organisation, project, club, service or Youthreach/Community Training centre this training is for you.
  • Recommended for Youth workers from groups taking part in the X-HALE 2019 Short Film Competition to facilitate their participation in X-HALE. Youth workers from non-participating groups are also invited to attend.
  • Youth organisation staff/volunteers that want to empower young people to actively participate in improving their health and developing their range of personal skills. Strongly recommended for youth organisations working towards the National Youth Council of Ireland’s Health Quality Mark Award for best practice in health promotion.
     

When is the training?

Training sessions are being held around the country in February 2018. Training will go ahead with a minimum or 10 participants and a maximum of 22 participants.
