A key topic in Youthwork since, well … Forever
Highlighting conversations around sex (above and beyond any other) in youthwork is perhaps unhelpful, given that youthwork is about journeying with young people as they explore ALL aspects of their journey from dependence to interdependence and adulthood. It is however a key conversation, and all the more now given that there are bigger conversations flowing from gender, identity, sexting, internet porn etc. It is really important that youth work provides a safe space to talk about all and everything, that being the case then sex and sexuality will be part of many conversations (taking place in the Framework of youthwork, ‘N’ ..a Non-discriminatory and Non-judgmental environment).
