Digital Youth Work Conference: All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online

Back to events

On Safer Internet Day (8 February 2022 from 9.30am to 3.30pm) we’ll be delving into youth work’s role in making the internet a safer and more secure place for young people. Make a day of it! Come and join us to grow your knowledge and share skills with colleagues across Scotland and beyond. Explore how youth workers can help young people develop their cyber resilience.

Hosted online by YouthLink Scotland, the conference will get to grips with:

  • Online gaming and youth work.
  • Practical digital youth work ideas from youth workers.
  • Positive online relationships.
  • Helping young people build their cyber resilience.
  • How makerspaces can grow digital knowledge.
  • Insight from young people.
  • Overcoming common hurdles to successful digital youth work.
  • And more!

The Conference Programme is now available.

Delivered mainly on Zoom, we promise an engaging, interactive day with spaces to meet and chat, keynotes from experts, practical how-to workshop sessions from youth workers and young people and a stream of inspiring new ideas to take away. 

This day is for you if you work with young people or manage people who do. You may be paid staff, a volunteer, CLD practitioner - local authority or third sector. You may already use digital in your youth work practice or just be thinking about getting started. You may be responsible for policy, strategy, guidance or delivery. You may think of yourself as an expert or a beginner. We’ll be sign-posting our workshops to help you get to the ones that will be most relevant to you and your work.

The conference is funded by Scottish Government and open to members and non-members. The target audience for this event is in Scotland, but it is open to participants from further afield too.
