The Multiplier event was organised by The Young Foundation in Mulberry Academy Shoreditch, London, on the 8th May 2019, under the title Prototyping ideas, using GATES board game example.
The event invitation was disseminated using The Young Foundation’s local networks in Tower Hamlets. Local leaders were invited by invitation and the school supported dissemination. The young participants were recruited within Amplify Youth programme participants at Mulberry Academy Shoreditch.
The event was run with a group of young people and a teacher that are already participating in The Young Foundation’s programme Amplify Youth in Town Hamlets. Three experts attended the session – a teacher, a community leader, a community worker and a council representative – contributing to the discussion with young people and participating in the activities with them.
Sixteen people participated in the event. They were asked to give their feedback on the event an ad-hoc survey activity. In total, twelve evaluation questionnaires were filled in.
For the Young Foundation’s first multiplier event at the Mulberry Academy on May 8th, twelve young participants and three experts were recruited from The Young Foundation’s Amplify Youth programme participants at Mulberry Academy Shoreditch. The three experts attended the session contributing to the discussion with young people and participating in the activities with them. The Young Foundation presented the GATES board game, and encouraged networking between attendees. The feedback from participants on the event was quite positive.
