Youth work is universal, no matter where in the world, or the circumstances, youth work is transformational. Ukraine is a sovereign free-spirited nation fighting for democracy and the rights of its citizens. Youth work must unite to support our colleagues to support young people in Ukraine as they seek to support in horrific times.
Our CEO has spoken to the National Ukrainian Youth Association – NUMO about the situation and the NYA is seeking to support young people and youth work at home and in Ukraine.
We have created a space for young people, youth workers and those that commission, fund or lead youth work to share your support and solidarity for Ukraine. You can post messages of support via our web form which will be added to our Messages of Support for Ukraine gallery. We hope these messages of solidarity will support our youth work colleagues and young people in Ukraine.
We have also created a specific area on our website with guides, toolkits and signposts for youth workers and those working with young people in England to help you navigate conversations with young people about the crisis in Ukraine and conflict.
If you have resources, guides or toolkits you would like us to signpost to or share, please complete the form below and our team will contact you.
