The Joint Agencies Group (JAG) was formed in 1982 when a number of development, environment, international and youth work agencies came together with the shared the aim of establishing a global dimension to the youth work curriculum. JAG members played a key role in the development of the concept and practice of global youth work. The group now supports its development, delivery and promotion throughout the youth sectors.
Our Vision is of a world in which all young people should be able to access good quality opportunities to explore and play a positive role in the changing global environment in which they are living and learning.
We meet twice a year, with email contact between meetings.
Everyone in the group contributes to chairing and preparing the agenda.
For more information or to join the group please email Catherine Richardson, Programme Manager at Think Global via info [at] think-global.org.uk, or Robbie Cheyne, Senior Youth Engagement Coordinator at Y Care International at robbie [dot] cheyne [at] ycareinternational.org
