MAKING SOCIAL CHANGES IN LOCAL COMMUNITIES
In this manual, we will discover step by step how to get started in the pathway of becoming a community organiser, clarifying some tasks and aspects of this profession and learning how it perfectly matches youth work. Just remember that only a tiny minority of young people are members of youth organisations; the overwhelming majority of lives dwell and learn outside of these structures. Yet this does not mean they, too, can’t benefit from youth work. When a youth worker becomes a community organiser, the outreach and benefit for young people are much broader and go beyond the membership and volunteerism that already exists within the organisation. The key is to empower youth to become leaders and establish partnerships and alliances to empower them to identify and tackle issues that affect them towards sustainable solutions. It all begins by applying the Theory of Change.
