101 Things to Do on the Street: Games and Resources for Detached, Outreach and Street-Based Youth Work 2ed

101 Things to Do on the Street is packed with creative and innovative ideas for street games and activities to help young people aged 11--19 explore personal, social and emotional issues.

Specifically designed so that few resources or props are needed, the activities included are all practical, easy to follow, and above all, fun. As well as helping young people get to know each other, they explore issues such as offending behaviour, gender stereotypes, values, trust and street safety. They also aim to improve skills such as teamwork, communication, compromise and negotiation. From role-play and arts and crafts to discussion and quizzes, there are over 100 ideas to meet the needs of young people who choose to meet on the street, which can also be adapted for use elsewhere. This second edition includes information on what detached and outreach work is, tips and ideas on how to get started, staying safe guidelines, and over 30 revised or new activities.

This valuable resource will be used time and again by detached and outreach youth workers, mobile projects, community development officers, street wardens, and youth offending teams - in fact anyone working with young people who needs tried and tested ideas for games and activities to engage and motivate outside of building-based provision.
