About the International Youth Worker Exchange

This cross-cultural professional exchange enables Hoosier youth workers to broaden their awareness of the practice of youth development in other countries. 

The intent behind the International Youth Worker Exchange is to develop partnerships with sister countries from around the world. Indiana Youth Workers will build life-long relationships, share best practices in youth work,  consider how professional youth worker networks enhance the field  and explore how  academic preparation and credentialing is approached  for youth workers in other countries. Living in our ever-growing global society, Youth Workers in Indiana will gain a better appreciation to think, act, and relate globally.

Indiana youth workers have developed relationships with peers from the United Kingdom, Kenya and Mexico and explored ways to serve young people in an increasingly global community.
