Culture is theme for youth week

Connecting cultures has been the theme of this year’s National Youth Work Week which is being celebrated this week in Nottinghamshire.

The youth service at Nottinghamshire County Council explored the theme as part of the awareness week from November 5 to 11.

Activities have included bracelet making, cultural food tasting, quizzes and music.

Chris Warren, young people’s service group manager, at Nottinghamshire County Council said: “Youth work offers positive activities for young people in our various youth centres and we aim to raise awareness of various issues that affect young people.

“This year’s theme Connecting Cultures, led by youth work staff through fun and organised activities another good example of this.”

National Youth Work Week has been coordinated by the National Youth Agency since 1993, providing an opportunity for youth organisations, youth workers and young people engaged in youth work to celebrate the achievements and impact of youth work throughout the UK.
