Ceredigion Youth Service will be celebrating Youth Work Week between 23 and 30 June, a week dedicated to celebrating youth work all across Wales.

Ceredigion County Council’s Youth Service will have an exhibition at Canolfan Rheidol, the Council’s office in Aberystwyth, and will have celebratory events running across all Youth Service Youth Clubs during the week. The Youth Service will also be raising the profile of youth work in Ceredigion by taking “Youth Work Selfies” with Senior Officers, Councillors and in Secondary Schools, Training Centres and Colleges across the county. Daily blogs and video clips will be shared on the Ceredigion Youth Service website and social media pages, asking young people “What does Youth Work mean to you?”.

The Youth Service will also exhibit at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay to showcase the work of young people in Ceredigion, along with all the other councils across Wales.

Ceredigion Youth Service’s Deputy Principal Youth Officer, Lowri Evans said, “Youth Work Week gives Youth Services across Wales the opportunity to celebrate youth work. Here in Ceredigion, we are eager to promote the importance and the value of youth work within the county. Ceredigion Youth Service supports young people between 11 and 25 years old in a variety of informal and non-formal settings, through targeted and universal provisions. Youth Work enables young people to develop holistically, working with them to facilitate their personal, social and educational development. This enables them to develop their voice, influence and place in society and to reach their full potential.”
