Why study Community Development and Youth?

The world isn’t a perfect place, and it needs good people to focus on how things can be better, and to help the next generation have the best chance they can to succeed. Knowing how to engage with a community and get it working towards positive goals is one of the best ways to do become a community development worker.

When we grow up in good communities, everything is better. Good community development creates happy people that care for and support each other, and stop vulnerable people falling through the cracks in hard times.
