Yoe can best describe me as an well motovated youth worker ffrom Belgium.
From the age of 16 I was doing animation work on the playgrounds. Providing activities and games from monday to friday +- 10 hours a day every schoolvacation from monday to fridey.
That was just the start, beacuse after my first summer as 'animator' the local youthclub asked me to join them in there workgroup. So I did, after a year i became secretary and responsable for communications. With that I mean 2-way communication with the youth arround me to know wat interests them, so we can provide activities for youth between age 14-26.
To learn more about working with youth and there world I took a coure in youthadvising. A small training where you learn the basics of youth information and how to use / help / advise the local youthinformation center.
Right now i'm almost 20 and still doing all that. The difference between that now is that (as a voulenteer) I am now an instructor and supporter in youthwork with the flemmish playground scervices. This is an organisation wich provides courses in child animation and head of animation ( leading a group of animators ) and also it supports playgrounds with all kinds of information which are based on studies. These help playgrounds in providing better care for the children and understanding there world vision.
