Barrie – Director of illuminateStroud
My ambitions for youthwork are that there is good quality, embedded youthwork in every community. That young people’s voices are considered as relevant as everyone else’s. That opportunities for young people to explore and develop their potential are increased and that mental health in young people improves exponentially.
Willow – Acting Community Youthworker Stroud:
My big dream is to have all young people feel confident and empowered to speak up and take charge of their services, and other areas of their lives. I want them to know for a fact that their voices will be heard, respected and valued the same as anybody else’s.
Isak – Community Youthwork Coordinator Stonehouse and Avening:
My hope for youthwork is that it gets the public wide recognition that it deserves, and that youthwork operates as part of the fabric of society in the lives of all young people, be that on the streets or on their phones.
Kathleen – Community Youthwork Coordinator Dursley and Cam:
