Progress: accredited training available to the voluntary and community sector young people's workforce

Muslim Youth Skills is one of five National Delivery Partners currently working on a project named Progress. The overall purpose of Progress is to give opportunities to build the capacity of the voluntary and community sector (VCS) by offering 25,000 accredited training opportunities for volunteers and paid staff locally, regionally and nationally.


We hope that you are able to cascade the information about Progress to all concerned parties across the VCS. In order to successfully participate and receive the training, we encourage all Muslim Organisations to contact their local Regional Delivery Agents and/or Muslim Youth Skills to make the most of the training opportunities available. Read full details here.

Muslim Youth Skills Managing Director, Tafazal Mohammad, has been invited to facilitate a workshop at a one day Conference on the 29th of September 2010 in Birmingham. The conference is going to take a grassroots perspective on interventions and work with Muslim Youth in the UK. It will also address how various events can impact on a young Muslims sense of belonging in the UK and also their level of participation as active citizens.



The conference is self financed which means it creates a space that can set priorities based on the needs of the community. We fill focus a great deal on how we can mainstream and sustain some of the work that has been occuring in various communities over the past few years.


Some of the titles of the workshops and keynotes include:



Muslim Gangs in prison: For Real or Fallacy?


Its a lot more than Cartoons, Minarets and Niqabs!


No Boys Allowed! the need for increased female only youth provision


Faith Schools or Schools that understand Faith


Every Muslim Child Matters too!



The conference promises to be a day full of innovative and creative conversation, Workshops, keynotes, Panel discussions as well as entertainment and lunch.  The conference is aimed at those working with Muslim Youth as well as those developing policy, strategy, intervention or funding opportunities for marginalized Communities. Though there are many conferences that take place around the country many have been government funded and so take a very top down approach to work with Muslim Youth, this is the first of its kind that will come from a grassroots perspective, with delivery from those on the ground.
