“Young people leading change” is the motto of our organisation. Since the foundation of our charity, formerly known as Aik Saath, our training has been led by young people. Wherever possible, young volunteers are involved in the delivery of sessions, whether leading from the front, facilitating small group work, or running one of the many games and challenges which bring our sessions to life. Our team of young volunteers also inform the content of our sessions, ensuring that what is delivered resonates with young people.
We believe that our most impactful work is delivered over a series of sessions, with each session building on the next, and allowing young people time to reflect and absorb session content. Typically training programmes last 6-8 weeks and are delivered in the same time slot every week. Our sessions last approximately an hour and we work with schools to find days and times that work with existing school timetables. Together As One can also offer stand alone sessions, workshops and assemblies. We can deliver sessions at ‘drop down’ days and PHSE focus days.

Evaluating the impact
We often ask young people to reflect on ‘where they are at’ prior to, and at the end of programmes. This enables us to measure young people’s perceptions of their own confidence, teamwork, communication skills, and other desired outcomes. Click here to see an example questionnaire.
