Congratulations to former College student Robin Lockhart who recently won the Global Commonwealth Youth Worker Of The Year 2016 Award - Robin writes:

During the week of 7th November I had an amazing experience…

A few weeks previous to this, I received notification from The Commonwealth that I had been nominated for their Youth Worker of The Year Awards - and that I had reached the final stages of the competition! They asked me to clear my diary for the whole week in order to engage fully in their events and with the other participants and finalists from all over the world. I am very glad I did!

 As an Independent London based Youth Worker (and form YMCA George Williams College student), I have been used to our UK perspective on Youth Work.  During my career, I have seen (as most of you will have too) numerous periods of Cuts / Austerity / attempts at ‘Professionalisation’ and other Endless Changes when I worked for Charities delivering Youth Work.  Now I run my own Social Enterprise – Catalyst In Communities – I am somewhat removed from these issues…

If you are part of the true Youth Work Tribe (those of us who take our profession as seriously as we take the welfare, development and nurturing of those young people we engage), you will have seen colleagues made redundant, centres opening hours reduced / closed and felt the other many challenges to the impact you want to have on your community.

During my week with the other finalists, I was privileged to be able to hear the views of other members of our Tribe from Kenya, Belize, Tonga, Pakistan, Jamaica, Malta, Uganda.

During my year of holding this title, I aim to utilise the opportunities that my ties to the Commonwealth bring… If you are part of the True Tribe and are looking to widen your view of Youth Work, get in touch!  It is more important now than ever before that we collaborate with our Global Tribe to truly succeed in legitimising this job we call Youth Work during these troubling times!
