From the publisher: Many volunteers struggle to know what to do with the young people in their care. Lacking experience and resources many give up. Others battle on for the sake of the young. “What Every Volunteer Youth Worker Should Know” provides much-needed wisdom, encouragement and ideas. Every church leader will want to get a copy of Danny’s book into the hands of all their volunteers. Danny’s lively and concise writing style, combined with the very practical and encouraging content, will appeal to busy volunteers. In addition, a Resource Directory and Ideas Factory, containing 50 tried and tested ideas, make What Every Volunteer Youth Worker Should Know the essential book for all those who work with young people. Written for the 87,000 ‘extra-timers’ who volunteer their time to work with young people, it answers the key question: what should I be doing, and how? These busy volunteers need to know the basics – and fast. Danny offers them the fruit of over 15 years’ experience, covering essential topics from child protection and group work to outreach and program planning. Packed with wisdom, encouragement and ideas, this practical and readable book will appeal to busy volunteers. A must read for all those who give their time to work with young people.
