The European Charter on Local Youth Work is a document that can be used by anyone to recommend the importance of local youth work: youth workers at their municipalities, local council members with their colleagues, youth organisations at national policy level etc.
The Charter contains:
- the most important principles of local youth work;
- its practical development;
- the local policy that is required for this;
- the role of youth workers; and
- quality development.
In Flanders, the project is coordinated by a national working group with JINT vzw, Bataljong, Ambrassade and the Department of Culture, Youth and Media.
Currently the Charter is available in English and several other languages. A Dutch version is on its way.
