Back European Charter on Local Youth Work

Author(s): European Youth Work Community of Practice

Date: 2019

Summary link to Recognition: 

The charter is a contribution to the recognition of youth work. It transforms a number of political documents into concrete guidelines regarding what is needed in order to establish and maintain quality in local youth work and therefore contribute to the further development of local youth work. It states which principles should guide it and how different aspects of it should be designed in order to meet these principles. The charter is a common European platform for the necessary dialogue on youth work. It functions as a check-list around which stakeholders can gather and discuss what measures might be needed for the further development of youth work.
