    Event description

    Youth workers operate with a specialist skill set that is distinct from the other welfare professions. Youth Work is premised on starting where the young person is (figuratively and literally) and the relationship between the youth worker and the young person is central to all good youth work. So how does this work when working with young people who have experienced multiple disadvantage? This seminar will explore how we 'do' youth work in this context as part of a broader discussion about class, gender, disability, sexualities and culturally diverse young people.
