Greater Manchester Youth Network (GMYN) is getting ready to hold the third annual Celebration of Innovation which will offer professionals working with youngsters the chance to join together for self-improvement.

The event, which takes place on Thursday, 16 March at The Grange Community Resource Centre in Beswick, brings together resources designed to work with young people and organisational productivity.

The event will address key issues such as volunteering, peer-led projects, health, governance and finance and community education.

GMYN’s development officer Myrtle Finley, said: “We recognise that Manchester youth organisations have a lot of skills, experiences and resources.

“The event aims to bring together a number of different examples of that and we are looking to facilitate other organisations to be resourceful, get showcased and distributed as well.

“We have a number of presentations to show from organisations based in Manchester who are basically giving short inputs into physical, online and other resources that may have available.

“We also have some carousel activities which means that people interact with a number of resources, so they can try them out and then take away their very own.”

Attendees can use their resources in a variety of ways in the future.

Some can use them directly with young people while others can take them away and discuss them with their team or organisation to see how they can develop their practice and integrate with the resources.

Other individuals might pass them on to people so they can access them themselves.

Myrtle added: “The event is in its 3rd year and it is very popular. So, we have to operate a waiting list.

“So if people would like to find out more about the event or about what GMYN does, then they can contact me at”

Everyone who attends will leave the event with an information pack.
