Objectives

A lot has been achieved so far in the development of youth work. However, continuous needs and new challenges are also still identified. This calls for establishing a strategic framework for strengthening and further developing youth work policies and practices in Europe – the European Youth Work Agenda. This is done by

  • implementing the European Youth Work Agenda in the Bonn Process as a strategic framework for the development of youth work in Europe,
  • establishing youth work as an essential part of youth policies,
  • ensuring and expanding the provision of youth work,
  • strengthening the common ground of youth work through co-operation between and beyond the youth work community of practice,
  • supporting the further development of quality youth work,
  • supporting the ability of youth work to tackle emerging challenges and innovate its practices,
  • enhancing the promotion and recognition of youth work,
  • and ensuring a strong role for youth work in the new normal.
