Wondering Wednesdays – guardians of a movement

This is a slide from a Trustee meeting I was at yesterday for Frontier Youth Trust – what a privilege. I first encountered FYT possibly 30 years ago and they have always been at the forefront of looking at youth work with those on the edge or at the margins. I have been involved for something like 20 years probably and seen many changes in that time. What is most exciting now is that a new generation of leaders is taking on the movement, operating as a team and doing that in creative and exciting ways. They support many youth workers and projects that perhaps don’t always feel understood in many other places. FYT have been formational in the work of many and have invested into the wellbeing, the theology, the practice, the vision of such a diverse group of people over the years. They describe themselves as the home for pioneer youth workers – check them out here. If you are a pioneer youth worker then consider linking up!
