Call for expressions of interest in contributing to new book on practice of youth work

Call for expressions of interest in contributing to new book on practice of youth work

“In Defence of Youth Work”, a movement based in the UK, is looking at the possibility of publishing a new book and invites expressions of interest in contributing to it.

 

The book would aim to:

– continue to support youth workers in whatever settings they are working,

– continue to support youth work as a distinctive practice of democratic education,

– seek to generate stories as evidence of its value and impacts,

– draw these stories from both open access/voluntary engagement and targeted and non-youth work settings such as schools, youth offending and housing associations and

– use the stories to open up the debate on such questions as: Is the practice youth work? How is it youth work? How is it not youth work?

– offer guidance on using story-telling in planned and rigorous ways.
