What on earth is digital youth work?
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. During 2020 more youth work was delivered online than ever before and many organisations are continuing to explore digital as a core element in their activities. 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!
