An extensive Erasmus funded international research project into the ‘Impact of Youth Work’ led by Plymouth Marjon University involves three youth work organisations in each of the following countries: UK, Finland, Estonia, France and Italy.
Stories of the impact of youth work on young people have been collected in these organisations for the last year and they will now be analysed and compared. The data will be disseminated through the publication of an open access e-book, published in 2018 and the project will culminate in an international conference in Sept 2018 at Plymouth Marjon University.
The National Youth Agency offers an insight into one of the stories, with the comments by the youth worker and stake holder: http://www.nya.org.uk/2017/11/international-research-project-communicates-impact-youth-work/
