2: Roles in a wider context
2.1 The diversity of roles
So far we have looked at the roles that are taken in work with young people. Now we move on to discuss roles in relation to the ‘bigger picture’ of organisations and projects that are concerned with young people.
The aim of this section is to help you do three things:
gain an idea of not only the diversity but also the complexity of different roles involved in working with young people
consider what is meant by organisational roles
clarify the underlying values of an organisation.
