Abstract

In the youth and community sector the debate about the place of emancipatory practice frameworks such as 'empowerment' and 'participation' to both youth work and community work is ongoing, as is the debate about the relationship of 'youth work' to the practice of 'community development'. However, recent research exploring the values, ideology and practice frameworks underpinning the training and preparation of professional youth workers suggests that youth work is firmly rooted in the theory and practice of community development.
