Description

OPEN UP is a new initiative where young people can take a lead in organising an event in the local cafe's around Shetland, we are looking to recruit new volunteers who would like to help organise each event. The OPEN UP events are looking to have guest speakers at each event that can encourage young people in the local areas to meet new people, have a safe place to come and talk about issues and have the chance to volunteer with the OPEN Project.

Organisation aims and objectives

The OPEN Peer Education Project provides training and support for young adults aged 16-25 to enable them to become peer educators, delivering workshops on issues that they feel are important to themselves and their peers in their local communities, e.g. sexual health and relationships, harm reduction in drugs awareness, young parenting.
