When working with young people experiencing poverty, homelessness or any other adversity, there is need to have a deep understanding of the young persons’ life experiences as a foundation to develop trust, mutual learning, and construction of knowledge. The ‘Do Not Give Up Project’ is a knowledge exchange and educational training package co-designed to promote health equity and civic engagement with and for people facing multiple vulnerabilities. Within this context, we aimed to provide more opportunities for young people to co-create new knowledge and be involved in the design of health educational resources. This workshop guide aims to share ideas of activities and topics to be sensitively explored by third and health sector practitioners who are interested in improving engagement, health knowledge and the participation of young people they interact with. This guide presents eight workshop themes designed to be flexible and adaptable to the practitioner’s audience and local circumstances. Four health promotion topics and four civic engagement topics. It is intended to be used by practitioners who already work with young people or seek to gain more insights and experience in interacting with these groups. It is free to download and use with the appropriate acknowledgment.
