Cardiff Branding

What is Youth Work?

The aim of Youth Work is to enable young people to develop holistically, working with them to facilitate their personal, social and educational development, to enable them to develop their voice, influence and place in society and to reach their full potential. This is the definition of youth work outlined within the National Occupational Standards.

However, Youth Work is more than a range of statements or commitments. Youth Work is based on the ability to develop and maintain working relationships with young people. The fundamental starting point is the voluntary relationship and ensuring young people are actively participating in the co-production of any work undertaken with them. The Principles and Purposes of Youth Work outline five pillars; educative, empowering, participative, inclusive and expressive, these are further clarified in the following link.

Most importantly, Youth Work is different things to different young people. Some young people access to have fun and meet friends. Some young people access for specific information support and guidance, other young people access to learn new skills, all young people are welcome.
