Want to study at a university that puts students first? The University of Bolton, ranked Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020, offers a positive and supportive learning environment.

Community Development and Youth Work are areas that people don’t need extra inspiration to get involved in. The best and most selfless types see the problems that exist in their communities and with young people and often just want to throw themselves at it. 

When we grow up in a community that has good mentors and provides guidance, it can make a world of difference. It can change what we believe we can achieve, and give us access to the resources that help us realise those beliefs.

Inspirational community and youth workers have the power to change lives for the better, and that’s something we should all want to do. If you needed further encouragement, look at a couple of the world’s most famous and influential people, who happened to start their careers in community work.

In his early years in Chicago and while studying law at Harvard, Barack Obama was deeply committed to community work. His decision to study law was based on his desire to better influence the community level challenges he was confronted with, from voting rights to housing, social care and taxation.
