Youth Work

Working with Children and Young People

Dundee CLD Youth Work Teams work collaboratively across the city with schools and a range of partners to deliver learning opportunities and activities for young people aged 11 (P7) -18 years old across all communities with a particular focus on areas of the city with the highest levels of SIMD.

Participation in Youth Work can help young people:

  • Become confident, resilient and optimistic about the future;
  • Manage personal, social and formal relationships;
  • Create, describe and apply their learning;
  • Participate safely and effectively in groups;
  • Consider risk, make reasoned decisions and take control;
  • Express their voice and demonstrate social commitment;
  • Broaden their perspectives through new experiences and thinking.
