Are you engaged in youth work? Then this guide is for you! It provides readers with a step-by-step guidance on how to engage in quality development in youth work and how to develop indicators and the tools needed to follow them up.

Who is this handbook for? You might be a dedicated youth worker, a young person active in a youth centre or organisation, someone responsible for an organisation providing youth work, or a politician responsible for youth issues. You might be sitting on the board of an NGO or work in public administration. You are aware that society, as well as the needs and interests of young people, is constantly changing. Therefore, you think youth work has to constantly develop to keep up with these changes.

More generally, youth work is important to you and you want it to be as good as possible! If this is true – then this handbook is for you.

This book is based on the premise that regardless of where youth work takes place and who is doing it, everyone concerned must take part in the process of quality development. What the book offers is a common ground and a common process for continuous and systematic quality development. It offers a structured way to find your own answers to the characterises of your setting – helping you to go from where you are to where you want to be, and to do it at your own pace.
