Learning is something that has to be learnt. When we want to give young people the opportunity to learn in youth work, youth workers have to support them in developing their own learning paths and strategies; the ‘facilitation of learning’.

Learning in youth work does not always have to be overt and structured. Sometimes youth work needs to be about fun for the sake of fun and allowing learning to take place naturally without it being backed up or reinforced by the youth worker.
