This accessible text explores as way of working, pioneered and developed over 22 years in a UK-wide initiative, to grow youth work by supporting individuals to train professionally while working in community-based organisations... and through this investment in people, to create a lasting impact within communities.

Journeying Together shows how demonstrating trust in young people, valuing them and acknowledging their rights and responsibilities enable us to involve them in community concerns. It is founded on the belief that there is good in us all. This is the starting point that make change possible, and is backed up by the view that:

  • young people are members of communities now, and not some time in the future
  • their voices must be heard for the benefit of all
  • there are leaders in the making amongst them

Journeying Together encourages readers to consider what they can learn from the approach, and how they can apply it in the own youth and community work.

Youth workers and you work managers in local authorities and the voluntary sector. Youth and community work students, lecturers and researchers. Anyone involved in working in partnership with youth workers and young people I communities. Policy makers concerned about young people and communities.
