We deliver different types of training to help young people handle stop and search. Our training sessions for young people are delivered by a small group of peer trainers and complements the rest of our material by teaching young people how to apply the 6 steps during the interaction, as explained in the Search Card, through group discussion, film and role play. The session is suitable for 11–25 year olds and usually lasts for 2 hours but we are flexible depending on your group’s availability. Once trained the young people will have the opportunity to become a peer trainer and get involved with policy and advocacy work.

To book a peer training session, for more information and to find about becoming a Y-Stop Peer Trainer, get in touch.

We also offer training for youth workers and teachers to educate young people about stop and search and engaging safely with the police along with a suggested lesson plan. This training package has been developed by lawyers, activists and educators to ensure that it accurately reflects the needs of diverse educational settings. Contact us for more information.
