Transcript

  • 1. This lecture will focus on the role ofstocktaking in a Youth Developmentcontext and how you can apply this to youth development practice.
  • 2. What is a Stocktake?
  • 3. Basically …0 A stocktake is getting a profile of your assets on hand – just, what do you have to work with…. 0 In the business world, this does involve a degree of counting (eg. how many metres of carpet can I profit from?) 0 In the youth sector, it is often looking at programmes and initiatives available: that is, what is being offered to youth and the wider community (eg. what mentoring programmes do we currently have in Whataroa and on what do they focus?)
  • 4. Why Stocktake??0 By stocktaking, you (and your organisation) can: 0 Develop a bigger picture of what is on offer 0 Partner with other programmes and build into these programmes with your initiatives 0 Assure yourself, and others, that you are not repeating what is already on offer (hence wasting resources) 0 Across organisations, build invaluable networks simply by expressing an interest in learning what is on offer, building on what is on offer and avoiding repeating what is already on offer 0 Within a programme or initiative, gather information to assist in an overall assessment or evaluation of the programme/initiative.
  • 5. So a Stocktake is… Getting a Bigger Picture of PYD Initiatives on Offer toYouth in a Defined Location (local or National)
  • 6. Doing a Stocktake helps …. ensure that new initiativesare fresh, vibrant, needed and are connected to currentinitiatives and the community
  • 7. Most of all …Stocktaking looks first at what is on offer
  • 8. So, it gives you anopportunity to celebrate and recognise that you are not starting with a Blank Slate
  • 9. Before Starting a Stocktake0 You should always see a stocktake as assets-based not gaps-focused 0 Gaps will always arise but a Stocktake should not centre on finding gaps alone 0 Instead it should be on building an asset base even further 0 This way you may work on a ‘perceived’ gap by surrounding it with other assets 0 Build on an asset even further through other initiatives or linking initiatives 0 See every gap/issue as an opportunity
  • 10. The FIVE steps of Stocktaking
  • 11. What initiatives do we have in our community that are focused on transition?What youth initiatives dowe have in our community?
  • 12. What initiatives do we have in our community that are focused on transition?What youth initiatives dowe have in our community?
  • 13. What youth initiatives do we have in our community? This question asks for too much information and you are likely to miss something out – it is asking everything from everyoneWhat initiatives do we have in our community that are focused ontransition? This question is focused, it is also strengths-based, because it is assuming that at least one initiative has focuses on youth transition
  • 14. So, if you are planning something for youth week – whatwill be the focus of your question? And will you just askabout youth week or will you be more specific (eg. whatinitiatives are being offered for youth week? Compared towhat health (or music or anything else you can think ofthat is connected to your placement organisation’sspecialist practice areas) initiatives are being offered foryouth week?
  • 15. The reason why we are stocktaking initiatives at this point is to …
  • 16. • Create a list of initiatives as a resource for organisations in our community?• Create a new/fresh initiative that supports others in addressing an area of need• Meet the needs of our young people and community• Have an event with a clear intention• To generate funds/cash• Find gaps and things wrong so that we can fill the gap and address any issue
  • 17. • Create a list of initiatives as a resource for Great organisations in our community?• Create a new/fresh initiative that supports Great others in addressing an area of need• Meet the needs of our young people and Great community• Have an event with a clear intention Great• To generate funds/cash Yes, this is a reality• Find gaps and things wrong so that we can fill the gap and address any issue Hopefully not the only reason
  • 18. So, if you are planning something for youth week –what will be the purpose of your stocktake?Will it just be on finding out what is happening or are yougoing to intend to build on what is happening?
  • 19. Every stocktake should involve stakeholders
  • 20. Every stocktake should involve stakeholders- People/groups who have something to contribute- People/groups who are going to be effected- People/groups who may need to be involved
  • 21. So, if you are planning something for youth week – whoare you going to involve? Of course you will involve yourorganisation and young people – but who else? And whowill you ask to find out other key stakeholders in yourcommunity?
  • 22. Stocktaking asks – what has worked well? And, how can we turnproblems/issues/things that haven’t worked into opportunities?
  • 23. • What factors of successful initiatives led to them actually being successful?• What initiatives/areas of our community need development so that it can be successful (these are your opportunities)?
  • 24. So, if you are planning something for youth week –How will you engage your stakeholders in reflection?Most of all, how will you use reflection to identify assets(strengths) and opportunities (needs/issues/gaps)?
  • 25. A Stocktake that looks to Note: You aremove forward to the future, not countingrecognises the importance of assets you areaccounting for assets (both recognisingthose of the individual and assets – youthose of the community). are accounting for assets.
  • 26. This is about finding out It also lookswhat people (individuals), beyond thewhanau and organisations immediatecan offer. stakeholdersIt looks at skills, talents and into the wholeresources. community.
  • 27. So, how will you get the people you involve to talk abouttheir assets (strengths)?How will you work at identifying assets in organisations?And … how will you go the step further and look at assetsin your community?
  • 28. Conclusion0 Stocktaking should not be seen as an boring task, but an opportunity (at least to create a list of resources)0 Stocktaking needs to be focused0 Stocktaking needs to involved those who are affected0 Stocktaking needs to focus on assets (strengths) and turning gaps/needs/issues into opportunities0 Stocktaking needs to have a clear purpose!
