Elevator Pitch (What is a youth worker)
Youth workers promote being active and living a healthy lifestyle. Whether it is from a healthy diet or playing sports to keep physically active we need our youth living healthy lifestyles. Obesity in children is a huge factor today and youth workers can help solve that problem. Youth workers can help the youth build communication and social skills. This is very crucial because of the fact that the youth needs to learn how to speak with one another not only with their peers but with adults as well and learn how to go about particular situations. Youth workers should promote after school activities for children and help them get into safe environments rather than out on the streets where trouble can happen. Youth workers should also find areas where certain children are struggling and help them figure out ways that they can succeed and overcome these troubles.
