Youth Work Central brings together people, expertise, and opportunities for youth workers' continued professional development. It is offered as an on-line tool of Health Resources in Action’s BEST Initiative. Youth Work Central makes accessible the support and professional development opportunities that youth workers need in order to understand and work with young people. Creating and raising standards for youth work ultimately improves the quality of services for youth. This site serves as a forum for sharing ideas, a place to learn about approaches, strategies and research critical to youth work, and a source of information about upcoming events and opportunities.
