This blog is one of a number of stories we’ll be posting throughout Youth Work Week 2018
Youth Work Week is here and on Saturday June 30 you get the opportunity to meet the people behind all the fantastic work that goes on in the local area.
The Youth Work in Education team will be at Tŷ Pawb and here is a little bit of background information about them to get you started…
What they do?
Youth Work in Education is a team of youth workers who are based in a number of secondary schools in Wrexham.
The youth workers provide young people with a variety of support while they’re in school. They work alongside young people to help them realise and understand their potential, and support them to develop the skills they need to build a successful future.
Youth Work in Education support young people with their continuing transitions through life and education.
A range of support
The youth workers provide a range of support including group work, personal support, issue-based sessions and drop-ins for young people. These sessions cover themes such as resilience, arts, friendships, sex and relationships and self-esteem.
What is key, is that the youth workers don’t choose the sessions. They listen closely to what young people want and need, and then work with them to make it happen.
Support for parents
The team also works with families and run Time Out for Parent courses which gives support to parents in a number of ways.
For further information on Youth Work in Education, contact Andrea Jackson on 01978 316750.
There will also be a number of other services promoting their work and plenty of fun and informal activities to get involved with.
One of these events is an open mic session starting at 1pm and later at 3pm you are in for a treat as Luke Gallagher will be performing live music.GET UPDATES FROM TŶ PAWB
