This year’s theme

This Youth Work Week is an opportunity to explore the changing landscape for youth work delivery and a time to celebrate the incredible difference it makes to young peoples lives.

The theme of Youth Work Week this year is What is Youth Work?

This will build on all the activity so far in 2018 that is highlighting the importance of our profession in working with young people. Whether you are a young person or a youth worker,  join us in sharing where your great youth work is happening!

There are loads of great ways to get involved. First and foremost, we’re asking everyone in the sector and beyond to record a 60 second video letting us know what youth work is to you. get creative! You will then be able to submit your videos to us via dropbox nearer the time. Note: Please ensure that yourself or your organisation are authorised and have the necessary permissions to supply this video to the NYA. Please avoid including the personal details of any young people.

You could also run a discussion, event or campaign around the youth work in your area, write a blog or send us a case study!

These will turbo charge the national campaign to show just how important, impactful and wonderful youth work is across the land.

There’s sure to be bags of activity on social media and opportunities to get involved so make sure you tag us with @natyouthagency and use the hashtag #YWW18 so you’re posts don’t get lost!

Youth work week 2018 is running from 5th – 11th November. Look out for more information in the coming weeks that will share more on how to get involved.
