Aaron Garth: Influences in Youth Work

img970“If you really want to get at the crux of what youth work is really about, you need to understand its liberation framework.
Anti-oppressive practice is a core framework and one of the best authors in this space is the South American Educational theorist Paulo Friere.
His book ‘‘The Pedagogy of the Oppressed” is often at the top of Youth Workers must read lists. If you are genuinely interested in helping young people then you must read this work.”
