Training costs & themes
FYT is keen to support groups of youth workers (qualified and non-qualified, voluntary or paid, centre-based or detached etc.) in their own locations and areas of work. We are able to offer a range of training designed to meet local needs.
The types of subject areas that we are able to deliver include:
- Introduction to Youth Work
- Team Building in Youth Work
- The Big Society
- Responding to Challenging behaviour
- Detached Youth Work
- Understanding Young People
- Understanding Your Community
- Group Work
- Mission and Youth Work
- Setting Up a Youth Work Project
- Evaluation in Youth Work
- Spirituality and Young People
- Youth Culture
- Young People and Learning
- Project Planning and Development Funding
- Young People and Participation
- Community Organizing
- Work with volunteers
- Theological reflection
If you are interested in a training or workshop event in one of the areas above, or in other youth work related themes (by negotiation and discussion) we would ask you to:
Locate and book the venue, advertise and bring the biscuits!
Ensure that at least 12 people attend for a minimum of 1 hour to 2 hour session
FYT describes itself as a missionary community committed to justice, equality and community. People who ask us for training vary a lot in terms of resource availability and we never want finance to restrict us from helping. We are delivering training to some groups in real need, with little or no finance, and operating on a purely voluntary base in areas of high deprivation and, by contrast, have delivered to groups who have more resources, we hope that groups will examine their own means and pay for our involvement based on this. As guidance, we offer the following suggestions:
- For an evening session (depending on travel time) a suggested figure of between £50 and £150 would be appropriate plus travel expenses.
- For a day session a suggested figure of between £150-300 would be appropriate plus travel expenses.
- Event hosts are free to set their own charges for people attending the events and pass on profits to a local project in their area.

FYT: Mission with Young People at Risk
Frontier Youth Trust (FYT) works with young people at risk towards justice, equality and community. Motivated by the Christian faith and informed by its principles, we work with people of all faiths and none. Based upon our youth work experience and research we also support, resource, inform, advise and train those working with and on behalf of disadvantaged young people. FYT works through a diverse range of projects including StreetSpace, Out4Good, Alongside and AIMCommunity.
Supporting The People With The Dreams
An influential Bishop and Cricketer who is part of FYT's founding story, David Sheppard, once said of FYT, "we must support the people with the dreams". It is an enduring call to youth work.’
Recently FYT has been thinking about ways to support the dreamers. Those who are dreaming of new ways to engage young people at the edge through StreetSpace; those dreaming of ways to help the church make a difference to unemployed young people; and dreaming of a way to support young people as they seek to reduce their offending among so many other dreams.
