The recruitment of the Chair to the Interim Youth Work Board was announced by the Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning at the Youth Work Conference on 21st March and in her Written Statement issued on the same date, which begins:
Through ‘Prosperity for All: the national strategy’ and ‘Education in Wales: our national mission’, the Welsh Government has restated its commitment to ensuring every young person is supported to overcome barriers to reaching their full potential.
High-quality youth work, delivered through the medium of Welsh or English according to the needs of the individual, has a crucial role to play in delivering these ambitions. Through informal and non-formal educational approaches, effective youth work practice builds the skills, aspirations, and resilience of young people, and can change their lives for the better. That said, our young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world set against a rapidly evolving social and economic context. Now more than ever, therefore, requires a refreshed approach to how we plan and deliver these essential services.
