What on earth is digital youth work?

What on earth is digital youth work? Online workshops available!

Young people’s lives are increasingly digitalised in so many ways and youth workers have a role in helping young people to navigate the digital aspects of their lives, but this isn’t something we are automatically confident in. New technology also gives us lots of opportunities to enhance our youth work practice, to engage young people and their creativity and amplify their voices in different ways.

This challenge is particularly relevant at the moment when we may wish to provide more of our youth work offer online. Join us to explore different types of digital youth work, opportunities to make your youth work offer accessible online and discuss relevant ethical and safety considerations.

This will be an interactive workshop using a videoconferencing platform, not a webinar, so sign up prepared to get involved!

To take part in the workshop you will need:
• Computer
• Internet connection
• Speakers/headphones
• Camera
• Microphone

Most modern laptops have camera, speakers and microphone built in.

Book your place at one of the latest available workshops designed for youth work staff and volunteers in Scotland.
