To outline different methodologies for the practical
implementation of Time 4 Young People
Person to agency timebanking has become a well evidenced and
recognised resource in Wales within a relatively short time frame.
The New Economics Foundation in "The
New Wealth of Time: How Timebanking helps people build better
public services" evidences that person to agency timebanking is
a cost effective and high impact method of engaging 'people as a
resource to co-produce services'. Timebanking has had a dramatic
impact in engaging young people as positive contributors to their
communities in areas suffering from high levels of disengagement
and anti-social behaviour. Many of these young people passively
attend youth services, but are difficult to actively engage. This
1-day session outlines different methodologies for the practical
implementation of Time 4 Young People enabling youth services to
successfully and actively engage young people into constructive
patterns of behaviour.
