Journey to Justice

Train the Trainer September 23rd 2017

Thanks to a generous grant from the MSN Fund, we delivered a Train the Trainers course for 30 participants from all over the country who work with youth and community groups, in schools, museums and art centres, as carers, lawyers and educators. Our aim was to teach the JtoJ approach (history, stories, the arts and social change) in order to embed and sustain it in a range of settings. It was a great day and we now have a film of the day which is a resource in itself. Participants began trying out the resources with girls’ groups, ‘disaffected’ school groups, refugees and sixth formers and reporting encouraging outcomes. ‘It was one time they properly listened!’

Feedback was tremendous: ‘The training day was inclusive and dynamic and offered a creative way to make a SAFE space.’ ‘I think we should lobby a future government to get such approaches and stories into the national curriculum.’ ’We must emphasise the journey not just results or events. Struggles must be recognised or we are denying truth and opportunities to the next generation.
