People who work with youth outside of the classroom provide an important link between children and their parents and caregivers. Coaches, youth group leaders, and mentors occupy a unique position of trust and responsibility in the development of young people’s character and role in the community. This supplement to the Parents & Caregivers Guide offers youth workers insights into the special role they play in preventing and intervening in radicalization and building more inclusive, resilient communities.
