We’ve received the following notice of a challenging Summer School for young people and community organisers – something of an alternative to the National Citizen’s Service!
Since the Summer insurgencies and riots of 2011 we’ve been thinking of creative and inspiring ways to work with young people to positively work around some of the issues the events gave light to. We’re really excited to announce our SWS Summer School 2012 – a one week intensive programme for young people to come together with long-serving community organisers to share and learn about issues around community justice, the insurgencies, and our political and personal histories. It will be taking place at sites across London from 7th – 14th July. It is free.
We would very much appreciate if you would circulate the below flyer and information with any and all young people that you work with and send it far and wide amongst your networks. Deadline for applications is Fri 15th June.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any feedback or queries regarding the summer school.
All the best
