What on earth is digital youth work?

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


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

Wednesday 3 June (1pm to 4pm)

If all the sessions are fully booked please get in touch with jwilkinson@youthlinkscotland.org to be put on a waiting list. We aim to schedule more sessions to meet demand.


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 in coming weeks 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.

There are lots of resources on digital youth work available here.
