For youth workers

Young people are connected to the world through food, clothes and music; via the internet and other media; through their experience of and concerns about fairness, conflict, poverty and the environment; and through the social and economic forces that shape their identity, their community and their lives.

For youth work to truly empower young people it must enable them to make sense of, reflect on and respond to the changing nature of the world they are growing up in.

You can explore what we mean by ‘global youth work’ and our Connect, Challenge, Change methodology underpinning it, through our background information page.

Our work around global youth work is shared and supported through our networks. Think Global runs the Joint Agencies Group with organisations involved in youth work and development education.

You can find inspiration and activities in our youth work resources section.
