Facilitators Manual: Guidelines to Enhance Child Participation and Work with Youth on Child Advisory Boards

This Manual serves as a methodological and administrative guidance for all partners on how to work with the Child Advisory Boards (CAB) within the "AWAY - Alternative Ways to Address Youth" project. After briefly introducing the project, detailed information is provided on setting up the CAB, planning its meetings, and developing the group. The manual also suggests approaches and guiding ethical principles for child participation. Along with the theoretical background, practical tools and tips are enclosed to help practitioners in working with the CAB.

Although this manual was prepared specifically for the AWAY project, it arises from the broader context of working with groups of young peoples. The core methodology is based on the principles of experiential education augmented through the fifteen year experience of Pressley Ridge Hungary Foundation staff in working with young people in various group settings. This manual is adaptable for use with any newly formed group of children or youth.
