The Dates and Theme
Youth Work Week provides an opportunity for youth organisations, youth workers and young people to celebrate their achievements and the impact of their work.
This year it will be held from 5-11 November 2018.
The theme for Youth Work Week 2018 will be What is Youth Work… ? Read more about the theme here!
Please download our introduction to Youth Work Week as a printable brief below.
A key part of our celebrations this year will be asking the sector to create and share short videos celebrating and emphasising the amazing impact youth work can have in the wide variety of settings it takes place in. Please see some guidance for this in our printable video guidelines below.
