Motivation Monday: Ideas for the Ultimate Youth Worker

American composer John Milton Cage is quoted as saying “I can’t understand why people are frightened by new ideas. I’m frightened by old ones”.

What old ideas about youth work or the youth sector frighten you? What holds us back? What would you change about our current situation?

What new ideas make you thrive? What ideas scare others?

How will your ideas change the world?
