Inside Youth Work - Insights into Informal Education

Published on


Over 20 years ago now, The Rank Foundation took a policy decision to develop funding programmes in support of community-based informal education. During that time, the lives of many young people and communities have been immeasurably enriched. Inside youth work gives a flavour of what we have learned about changing young people’s lives. These pages include a brief taste of young people’s achievements - individually and in groups. Equally importantly, Inside youth work provides an insight into what motivates and underpins the ambitious and effective youth work projects that have nurtured those young people. The variety of practice within these pages is evidence of the fact that there is no single blueprint for life-changing work. But there are common principles and vital skills underpinning the achievements described on these pages.
