In May 2013 Council of the European Union initiated a European expert group with the task ”To examine youth work quality systems in EU Member States and explore how common indicators or frameworks may be developed.” Jonas Agdur, chairman of InterCity Youth, has been the chair of the group, which has now presented its report.
The report contains both a definition of youth work, its core principles and a description of what constitutes quality in youth work. It also describes the process of quality development and gives many examples of quality tools and systems that can be used to assess and develop youth work. Among these examples are many from members of InterCity Youth!
