Harrow Youth Work Forum

The Youth Work Forums are a space to connect with colleagues from organisations across the Young Harrow Foundation and Northwest London community and share what training and qualifications you need.

The forums are quarterly meet-ups for front-line staff working directly with children and young people. This forum is predominantly for those working on the ground with children and young people but if you are a CEO and a practitioner, you are welcome to attend.

The next Forum will be on October 8th 2024. More details soon.

Level Up Youth Work has helped me find my footing in this sector. I've connected with other youth workers and shared any work dilemmas with the group. I am also doing the Level 2 Youth Work Qualification which it would not have happened without attending the Level Up Forums.
