Valuing Youth Work: Research-Informed Practical Resources for Youth Workers – Reflecting on the Value and Evaluation of Youth Work1 month ago 1 month ago
This toolkit was developed by Tania de St Croix and Louise Doherty at King’s College London.
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
Our three-year study, Rethinking Impact, Evaluation, and Accountability in Youth Work, found that youth workers and organisations are keen to evaluate their work. Yet, it can be challenging to carry out evaluation in ways that support informal education and anti-oppressive practice, both of which are central to youth work. Our research found that youth workers and youth organisations navigate these issues most successfully when there is the flexibility to take creative, reflective, and youth-centred approaches to evaluation.
This resource raises questions for reflection to support youth workers and organisations to develop youth-centred, participatory, anti-oppressive evaluation practices.
While it is primarily for youth workers and youth work managers, practitioners working in related settings may also find it useful.
