Developing Detached Youth Work Practice
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project is a partnership between Agenzija Zghazagh in Malta, Asociatia Centrul pentru Dezvoltare Comunitara Durabila in Romania, Stichting JONG Rotterdam in the Netherlands and YMCA George Williams College in the UK. The Project aims to develop and strengthen detached youth work services in the partner countries through the exchange of good practice and peer learning and support. The project will evaluate existing services as well as newly established services and will develop quality assurance tools that can be used in a detached youth work setting working with youth at risk of social exclusion. It draws on the experience achieved by the Dutch and UK partners to enable the Maltese and Romanian partner organisations to develop their practice in a manner consistent with best practice. This will be achieved through the provision of supervision and mentoring to youth work managers involved in the setting up of new detached youth work services; the provision of training to youth workers that will also allow for observation of existing projects and the sharing of experiences; the drawing up of polices and procedures in line with quality assurance systems; the evaluation of new and existing services through a range of methods including observation, interviews and documentation of activities; and dissemination of the evaluation report. Expected outcomes include an increased capacity of the partners to implement detached youth work projects and to monitor their effectiveness as well as offer the required support to youth workers involved in service provision. The impact of the project will be calculated on the ability of the partner organisations to effectively engage with young people at risk and to secure ongoing funding for their detached youth work services.
