Low Cost, No Cost Youth Work – 101 Positive Activities for Young People

This compendium by Vanessa Rogers is an A to Z of exciting activities that cost little or nothing, except for time and enthusiasm, and so is perfect for the straitened times we find ourselves in. The activities will encourage, energise and motivate young people.

Environmentally sound, good fun and encouraging team work, each of the 101 activities has already been tried and tested by practitioners to ensure that they work.

It is divided into five categories:

craft activities
problem solving; and
team games.
Each activity provides a resource list, clear instructions of how to do it and an estimated time of how long it will take. There are also suggestions for adapting the ideas to include young people with disabilities and those needing more targeted support. A notes section for each activity means you can personalise this resource with your own evaluations, learning outcomes and useful variations.
