Passion and Resistance in Youth Work Research: For Grad Students


Join us for this engaging and interactive workshop designed for graduate students with an interest in critical youth studies and/or youth work. Organized by Adrienne Young, Ph.D. Student at York University and YouthREX Research Assistant, the workshop will feature Dr. Tania de St Croix, renowned critical youth studies and youth work scholar, author, youth worker, and academic at King’s College London, UK.

This workshop will draw from Tania’s deep interest in critical reflection on youth work, storytelling, dialogue, and deliberation, supporting youth workers, young people, and youth researchers as writers. Discussions will be informed by Tania’s critical engagement with issues of knowledge production, the dilemmas of community-engaged research, and the sharing of research.

Together, we will explore:

  • Institutional/structural barriers, including those that impact ethical considerations.
  • Strategies for anti-oppressive research and opportunities for a deeper understanding of the nuances of researching youth and youth work in partnership with the community.
  • Creative approaches to data collection with youth, beyond surveys and interviews.
  • Innovative knowledge translation approaches for sharing our work within academia and with youth and communities.
  • Students will have the opportunity to engage in group discussions to collaboratively work through challenges, to share and celebrate successes, and to build connections with peers from both Canadian and UK contexts.

This interactive workshop is open to graduate students who are interested in critical youth studies and/or youth work and is free to attend.
