Youth and Community Work
Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on review model in youth and community work. These include discipline, honesty, self-help, determination, teaching and teachable nature, self-drive, creativity, and reliability to mention but a few.A youth worker must, therefore, be a reflective practitioner. As Knott & Scragg (2010, p. 7) define it, reflective practice is the act of reviewing what one has done and evaluating between what has been done well, and what needs to be redone or improved to achieve the best status. This is important in that it allows for improvement or the sustenance of effective practices aimed at achieving development. In light of this, there is the issue of critical campaigning which refers to the provision of a base for amplification of youth [workers] voices and in the process seeking to protect and advocate for democratic and emancipatory youth work.The definition and values above act as a guide in identifying some ways through which youth workers can succeed in impacting positive change in the wider society. In elaborating this, the following section will highlight the role played by the youth during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s in pursuit of the end to segregation and racial inequality. Although the campaigns are popular as advocating for the rights of Blacks, a significant fraction of Whites also supported the movement, and today, it remains one of the most successful and significant social campaigns on the planet. According to Azikiwe (2010, n.p.), The role played by youth in the Civil Rights Movement was big and accounts largely for its success. The youth had their organizations such as the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and it was the motivation and energy of youth that enabled these organizations to be bold and powerful in their advocacy towards equality and racial respect (Hampton & fair 2011, p. 15). The largest percentages of these movements were college students and school-age students.
