Portsmouth: A Young Changemakers City
Unloc is launching an exciting new project which is fully funded by the Ellis Campbell Foundation. We are looking for 5 Portsmouth schools to take part in a 3 year project seeking to better embed democracy into school life. The project has four key strands to it:
Creation of a localised toolkit of resources for tutorials, citizenship, and use across the curriculum. The toolkit will be co-produced with teachers and young people alike to ensure it is fit for purpose.
In-school whole day events for a year group at a time delivered by the Unloc team, bringing democracy to life in an interactive, youth led, highly energised way.
Young Leaders Incubator
An open-access incubation programme for young leaders who show a deeper interest in democracy. Each cohort of 20 young people will take part in four weekend-long experiences to boost their leadership and democracy skills.
We understand the significant pressure put on schools and we want to help as much as possible. We will provide ongoing support for embedding democracy into school life more generally, including in individual curriculum areas.
