The set of cartoons about church youthwork that I was wittering on about a month or two back are now online. Go to the schoolswork.co.uk site and in particular National Charter for Youthworkers. Here’s the blurb from the site:
“We love our youthworker!” will be officially launched next spring, but here’s a sneak preview of the aims of the charter and the set of seven sections with the cartoons to accompany them.
This is a campaign to encourage churches to think about the way they employ a full time worker and is based on a set of seven promises that churches commit to follow.
We believe that keeping full time workers positive, productive and living balanced lives makes for great youthwork. That’s an important step towards building God’s kingdom among young people.
Churches who sign up to the Charter gain a set of benefits and can expect to attract the very best youth workers in the UK. And, of course, it can also help them think about the best way to support volunteer youth workers.
The charter is a joint project between Youthwork the Partnership and Amaze.
Keep reading to see the set of seven cartoons by the ever brilliant Dave Walker from Cartoon Blog, and a description of each of the seven promises.
