Abstract Young people are the specified clients of many of those employed in community services, in both government and non-government agencies. Many of these employees, however, do not have formal qualifications in youth work. In this article, Judith Bessant explains both why young people qualify as a defined population sector with distinct service needs, and how, through sepcialised education and training, youth workers are better able to serve this sector than are employees without youth work training.
