Youthwork Lab: Failure & Improvement
Have you spent the time writing and planning an engaging session for a Sunday morning, only to have no one turn up? Have you ever had a young person kick off so much in a youth club session that you called the police? Have you ever had to go to A&E with a young person? Have you ever arranged a trip, booked a minibus, only to find that, despite promises that young people were going to come, one car would have sufficed? Have you ever been chatting to other youth workers and exaggerated the numbers of young people you work with? Have you ever run a session with more leaders than young people? I have.
