Youth work in Australia has changed a lot in the ten years I have been involved in it.
As a collegiate we are at a cross roads. Should we follow the path that our fellow workers from WA have taken and professionalise? Should our training become more specialist? Are THEY right when THEY say youth workers just drink coffee and play pool with young people but have no real use? It is tough being a youth worker today.
This blog will track the changes that are happening across Australia and keep youth workers up to date with news and event as they come.
I hope you join me on the Journey.
