Round Table on the topic "Youth workers in Bulgaria"

The Plovdiv Youth Centre hosted its fifth round table. The topic of discussion revolved around the significance and recognition of the profession of the youth worker.

The round table was carried out in small format. The participants represented various youth organisations and NGOs that work directly with young people and have a wealth of experience in this field. The meeting was moderated by Vera Kirilova (NAVA) and Vasil Vasilev (YCP). George Merdzhanov (YSPDB) gave the participants a quick ‘tour’ of the youth work in Europe and familiarised them with what have been done thus far about the recognition of the youth worker profession in Bulgaria.

After that a general discussion was open and all attendees had the chance to discuss the current social state of the young people in Bulgaria and why youth work is so significant. In a very informal way the group went into a deeper discussion of the youth worker profession by touching upon several key issues, such as: the quality of youth in Bulgaria, expected (qualitative and quantitative) results, and last but not least the promotion and recognition of the youth worker profession in Bulgaria.
