Thank A Youth Worker Day

Thank a Youth Worker Day is a joint effort of community partners, youth work organizations, youth and child care workers, and individuals who have signed on to declare an international day of celebrating youth workers. The day is marked by local celebrations of youth work and public relations efforts to encourage people to thank youth workers who make a difference in the lives of young people in their communities.

The Abbotsford Youth Commission is a proud partner of Thank a Youth Worker Day!

More information:

WHO IS A YOUTH WORKER?

A youth worker is anyone, staff or volunteer, who works with or for the development of children and youth by working directly for or on behalf of kids. Youth workers include: child care providers, coaches, youth ministers, after-school program organizers, recreational leaders, etc.

WHY SHOULD WE HAVE A DAY TO HONOR YOUTH AND CHILD CARE WORKERS?

Recognizing youth and child care workers and their efforts contributes to increased productivity, effective work, organizational loyalty, retention, recognition of youth-serving organizations, and, perhaps most importantly, to positive growth in the lives of children and youth and our communities.
