Supporting Youth Workers, Impacting Youth, Advancing the Field

Youth Work Central brings together people, expertise, and opportunities for youth workers’ continued professional development. It is offered as an on-line tool of Health Resources in Action’s BEST Initiative. Youth Work Central makes accessible the support and professional development opportunities that youth workers need in order to understand and work with young people. Creating and raising standards for youth work ultimately improves the quality of services for youth. This site serves as a forum for sharing ideas, a place to learn about approaches, strategies and research critical to youth work, and a source of information about upcoming events and opportunities.

Please read on for our most recent newsletters, where we are sharing COVID-19 resources and training updates and announcements.

We are also planning to modify our Youth Work Supervisor training, and will share more later this year. You can read more about this decision here.
