Close encounters of the third kind

3rd kind.jpg
Whilst I was at a school fete I happened to get chatting to a couple of detached youth workers* and the subject of paperwork came up and they gave me a look see at their recording sheets. For each conversation they need to record some details and attribute a level of encounter from one to three. One being at the level of a brief conversational exchange through to three which would involve an outcome where a young person was taking action to challenge or change something.
Although I’m not wild about paperwork I am up for stuff that keeps us accountable to intentional youth work.
Filed under: Not sure where this one was going but I like the word intentional and i like the four bedrocks of youth workeryism:
Voluntary participation
Informal education
Empowerment
Equality of opportunity
*I’m wondering if this makes me a detached ,detached youth worker, worker?
