In this TEDx Doncaster Talk, Tylae shares the idea that Traditional Youth Services and informal education in the United Kingdom are much more than just buildings, social hubs, and places for young people to develop their basic social skills.

Just scratching the surface, these spaces offer opportunities for those pressured by inequality, safe spaces for Gay, Trans, and Black young people, detached work to help young people on the streets, a place to celebrate and learn more about oneself, culture, and identity.

Tylae is a living, breathing example that youth work works; however, after significant budget cuts, Tylae presents how our sector needs to recover, and move forward, after over 10 years of ‘big society’, National Citizen Service (NCS), and neo-liberalist mindsets taking over the agenda to support services for young people.

Tylae focuses on how to support, protect, and raise the voices of young people and challenge the current landscape that is being exploited at the hands of the so-called ‘big society’ organisations and the NCS.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organised by a local community.
