Next week is Youth Work Week in Wales (23rd-30th June). It is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the impact and diversity of youth work across Wales.

The Week aims to promote a wider understanding of and support for youth work.
As we are unable to hold a physical showcase event this month, we are encouraging young people, youth work organisations, decision makers and other stakeholders to join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags #YouthWorkWales and #GwaithIeuenctidCymru

On Tuesday 23rd June, a number of videos will be shared throughout the day on social media (@YWWales), including a showreel created by ProMo-Cymru to promote and celebrate youth work.

There will also be a Twitter Q&A session with members of the Interim Youth Work Board

Please follow @YWWales and join in the conversation using #YouthWorkWales and #GwaithIeuenctidCymru

Feel free to tag us in your messages (@CWVYS)!

New CWVYS staff member!

Hi there

Well I am so pleased and excited to join CWVYS and the amazing team as their new Membership & Policy Officer. 
I have worked across many industries, sectors and roles throughout my career but I can genuinely say that it’s working within the youth sector that have given me the most joy and satisfaction. 
My key role here is to make sure we have all the correct information so I can support you as members in whatever way I can. 

That could mean finding the right contacts, collaborative opportunities, useful networks and events, important documents and/or solutions to help you move forward. It also means I have a responsibility to represent you at strategic meetings to ensure your voice is heard, it reflects the diversity and current landscape and influences discussions and decisions. 
So don’t be shy – tell me everything!

Due to the monster that is Covid-19, I obviously can’t come to visit you in person at the moment but I don’t want that to stop us from meeting and getting to know each other. So I would like to make plans to get in touch with you all via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, phone or whatever method suits you. I understand that everyone’s situation is not the norm but I would at least like you to know we are here for you regardless. 

When you are able, email me with your preferred contact info then we can set something up from there. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions, ask away via
