Overview

Grassroots Youth Work: Policy, Passion and Resistance in Practice by Tania de St Croix


Some of the most energetic, effective, and passionate activists involved in grassroots politics are young people—but their voices are rarely heard in policy, research, or public debate. This book remedies that, giving young activists their due and showing the effects of passionate social service practitioners who build relationships with marginalized young people in the face of spending cuts and shifting governmental priorities. Written by an experienced youth worker, Grassroots Youth Work uses interviews, dialogue, and excerpts from research diaries to bring youth work to life in both theory and practice.
