Digital will continue to grow – as youth workers can we use it for good?
Digital youth work is bigger, more important, and more long term than our response to the Covid crisis. Increasingly, young people lead digital lives, so it’s essential for youth workers to engage and support activities in this field or risk becoming irrelevant.
For over 10 years we’ve been exploring how digital technologies can be used in youth work. Here at YouthLink Scotland we’ve helped define and develop the concept of digital youth work, creating ideas and resources with European colleagues. You can find ideas, resources and guidelines at digitalyouthwork.eu.
