I picked this up from Prophetik Soul’s Blog
I hadn’t seen it before and it made me laugh and also reflect on its implications for my work!
LGBTU Strategy Development (2)
Snowed Under in June!
Interesting stuff billybean.it seems like you are at the policy/programmatic level of youth work. I assume you are employed by a government agency. In the states, it seems like those who are most advanced in youth work are employed by nonprofit orgs.
Yes, I’m employed through local government although here in the UK we also have a thriving nonprofit youth sector. I would hope that we are all advancing together in youth work however I feel that the nonprofit / voluntary sector have more flexibility to be creative but also less certainty around funding.
lol now there’s the start of an interesting debate. That was the main reason I moved from a local authority position to work for a charity (a long time ago) – the flexibility I mean not that it was ‘more advanced’ 😉
Very scary though to then start and be given a single sheet of paper with a few vague contacts on it, a £20k budget and told to get on with it. Worked out pretty well in the end but when you get to a point where everything you’ve done and various projects and peoples jobs depend on whether your funding bid is successful thats not such a nice position to be in.
re. the film I’ve seen it before and still didn’t spot it!
