Short Burst Training

Young people participating in Short Burst training with CMY

Short Burst Training offers fun and interactive workshops for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

Our Short Burst Training series is designed to assist young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds who are involved, or want to be involved, in youth groups or youth-led initiatives, or who want professional development opportunities.

Short Burst workshops aim to provide young people with an introductory knowledge of leadership, and to support them at different stages of the development of their own initiatives.

Each module is 2-3 hours long and involves a combination of interactive discussion and group activities. Workshops can be delivered for groups of eight or more on request, at a time and location that suits the participants.

Workshops are free for independent community youth groups. Organisations may also request Short Burst training to complement their existing youth programs, for a service delivery fee.

Whilst we recommend completing the whole series, groups can request any or all of the available training modules. Please contact CMY’s Short Burst Trainer to discuss which modules are the most appropriate for your group.
