Help us to shape your event!

Shaper Groups

We need workers/leaders and their groups to be involved as our 3Generate Shaper Groups to help hear the voice, and encourage greater involvement, of children and young people in the planning and delivery of the 3Generate event each year. We need Shaper Groups to help shape four age streams: 8-11s, 11-14s, 15-18s and 19-23s.

Shaper Groups are facilitated by local workers/leaders (or sometimes peer-led in the case of 19 - 23 year olds) with children and young people in their own setting. Workers/leaders will consult with their group (or individuals) on the content of the programme for 3Generate and, as a group, they may get involved in shaping one particular area/session/aspect of the event. This may involve them shaping it for someone else to deliver in the end, or being involved in the delivery themselves. We also need 19-23 year olds interested in helping to shape the 19-23s stream.

If you are interested in being a 3Generate Shaper Group, then email us  and we will send you further details.


If you can't be involved as a Shaper Group please hold a consultation with your group and tell us what the children and young people said was important to be discussed at the next 3Generate. There are a number of resources to help you with this and they can all be found here. The 3Generate Local Pack provides you with everything you need to carry on the 3Gen conversation all year-round. If you don't have that much time then take a look at the Big Session on page 5 of the 3Generate Local Pack. This is a ready-made session plan, allowing young people to be consulted in approximately a one-hour session.

We look forward to hearing from you or your group. Please email us any feedback and ideas that you have!
