....................Resources & Gallery

We are hoping to create a full gallery of the work we and the other young people we work with have done over the last few months. However, we haven't yet been able to find all the images and upload them to the site. Please click here for a taster.

The resources section of this site contains links to other sites which encourage debate, democracy and participation. If you would like your site added to this list please email us. We have also included here an outline of our alternative citizenship curriculum, and resources linked to it. These resources are aimed at young people who have already taken the workshop and who would like to take another look at the issues we talked about there.

Hands Up citizenship workshops aim to prove to young people that politics and current affairs are not only interesting, but affect every area of our lives. If we want to have a say on issues which affect or anger us, we need to understand the context in which they are happening and be able to argue our point of view. Check out the gallery for images of workshops in progress.
