Your Voice Webinar – Debating Resource for Students – 8 July 10-11.30

Come and hear about how the Your Voice programme could be used in your college, in a webinar organised with College chaplains and staff in mind.

When youth worker and former FE College chaplain Barry Mason asked local high schools in the Kidderminster Bewdley area how he might support their students, staff asked him how he might grow young people’s confidence in speaking in public and articulating their opinions confidently.  

In response, Barry developed Your Voice – a series of debates on a variety of hot contemporary topics, drawing on the material in the youth edition of the Good News Bible, but open to allow young people to form and express their own opinions. Over the past couple of years Barry has been trialling Your Voice with various groups of students, including at Worcester Sixth Form College alongside college chaplain Jo Oates.  

On 8 July 10am-11.30am you can find out more about using Your Voice in your college in a webinar featuring Barry Mason and FE Chaplaincy Ambassador Nigel Roberts. For more details and to sign up, please contact fechaplaincy[at]saltleytrust.org.uk.
