Cities can be tough places for young people to grow up. Urban areas offer great opportunities, but they can also present big challenges - especially for those with fewer advantages. This publication shows how youth and community workers play an important role to support young people in the cities, so that they can reach their full potential and make a positive transition to adult life.
This research publication shares some insight and tips for anybody working with young people in (sub)urban areas: This study examines some of the big issues young people face in our cities today: unemployment, schooling, lacking facilities, distrust,... Further, it identifies the key components of working effectively with urban youth and highlights a number of successful interventions across Europe. We hope this booklet inspires change, as any crisis can be seen as an opportunity to improve current practice. Go for it! This booklet is part of the SALTO 'Inclusion for ALL' series.
