`This is the first book about managing youth work for a very long time and is very welcome. The book will help the developing practitioner become better equipped to lead youth work that is soundly informed by their professional values. It will also be a valuable source for more experienced practitioners wanting to dip in for some analytical sustenance for their daily youth work management' - Mary Tyler, Principal Lecturer, De Montfort University
Good, clear book which focuses on the main concepts surrounding the topic.
This book is an interesting read - well laid out easy to read - but not suitable for Education students. Will pass on to colleagues.
Excellent book especially for Youth Studies. I particularly found the active involvement of young people chapter and specifically the participation section very appropriate. Very appropriate course reader for us.
This text covers all bases for our students studying in the field of youth and community work. It is a text that can be utilised for the whole module and students have found it a useful text offering a good foundation and introduction to informed, inclusive decision making.
A great book, well laid out with a cohesive flow of relevant information. Each chapter can be read independently as a self contained reader on specific issues. Examples given are practice specific and therefor meaningful to students.
This text is one for students who are inexperienced in youth work and do not have a grounding in the guiding principles and practices of youth work currently. It offers a balanced and accessible introduction to the issues facing youth and community workers, by its well written straight forward language and presentation.
