Tens of millions of young people globally have lived with/are living with considerable and prolonged toxic stress at home…

20-years of research into Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) confirms that toxic stress from sustained domestic/social adversity can disrupt brain development and compromise functioning of the nervous and immune systems. Young people who have faced ACEs, experience un-managed anxiety which can lead to serious problems such as alcoholism, depression, eating disorders, unsafe sex, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.

A Youth Worker Community of Practice!

We recognise the key role youth workers play at the frontline of societies globally, so we created a community of practice to build a specific capability and support them in making a significant social impact.

All members are given unlimited access to the international expertise, resources and support needed to establish a multi-disciplinary capability spanning FIVE key domains. This unique community connects with members digitally and locally, using the latest in mobile technology to guide on-the-job learning & development.

Structured Professional Development

Members elevate their membership, as they increase their CPD activities; moving up from Bronze, to Silver and onto Gold status.

We guide members through THREE stages of professional development to reach Gold member status, creating licensed specialists in Trauma-Responsive Youth Social Emotional Development Practice. 

National Networks & Quality Standards

Once 80% of front-line youth workers within an NGO/project reach Gold Membership status, we recognise their organisation as a Provider of Excellence in Youth Social Emotional Development Practice.

This establishes a national quality standard and sustainable resource, dedicated to preventing  youth mental ill-health.

Community youth workers & Social Impact!
