Who Is a Youth Worker?

Youth Worker:  n.  An individual who works with or on behalf of children and/or youth to facilitate their personal, social, and educational development and enable them to gain a voice, influence, and place in society as they make the transition from dependence to independence.  (Definition from the National Collaboration for Youth.)

Does your organization use a different term?  Youth care worker…Child care worker…youth minister…etc.  If so, please take the materials and adapt it to say thank you in your culture and your organization!
