Seriously Awkward - Best Youth Work Resource 2016

Seriously Awkward is a set of 6-sessions for youth groups, resourcing and addressing current issues. Produced by The Children’s Society, the sessions cover identity, mental health, relationships, life online, vulnerability and the value of campaigning – big issues for teenagers today. Seriously Awkward offers a gentle Christian perspective through discussion and reflection, demonstrating how an active faith shapes teenagers’ attitude and responses to these issues. Additional online resources are free to download, allowing young people to research topics if they are particularly interested. Seriously Awkward is fun, hard-hitting and makes a difference.
