Youth Workers work with teens and pre-teens in churches, community centers, social programs, and outdoor-recreation programs. Example resumes in this field indicate duties such as engaging students entering 6th grade through 12th grade; co-facilitating daily programs; and planning various lessons targeting marginalized youth to empower them to make healthy decisions and avoid risky behaviors. Most social and community programs require their Youth Workers to have at least a high school diploma on their resumes, and full-time programs in churches, schools and counseling-based programs require a bachelor's degree and often additional coursework in the areas of religion, education, sociology or psychology.
