Youth Work Week in Wales

Youth Work Week

Youth Work Week took place from 23-30th June. Although we were unable to meet in person this year, it was brilliant to see Youth Cymru members, young people, youth workers and organisations from across Wales share their Youth Work Week celebrations on social media. Follow @YWWales on Twitter to see what’s been happening across Wales!

On the first day of Youth Work Week, a number of videos were shared on social media, including a message from the Minister for Education and a showreel created by ProMo Cymru featuring young people from across Wales explaining why youth work is so important to them. You can view all the videos at the links below:
