Job Description for Youth Worker

A youth worker serves as an advocate and role model at a youth center or program, providing guidance and support to teenagers and children. The main focus for a youth worker is to build therapeutic relationships with their mentees. Though this is a support position, a youth worker should have strong leadership capabilities to provide the youth with the direction they need. Sensitivity to cultural and individual differences are essential. Additionally, since youth workers interact with children from many different backgrounds, they must be flexible, patient, and understanding. Maturity and consistency are important, as the youth worker must set a positive example for the children who are being mentored.
