impromptu youthwork

last weekend was in the city with the family. I was taking pics when I came across a group of young people by St.Pauls Cathedral. Took the opportunity to speak with them and had a great conversation as well as a few pics. We talked through the issues of having few places to ‘hang’ and then a little motivation for a couple of boarders to try some tricks they had never done before.
It was a fun 30 minutes in a packed day…..no CRB checks, no insurance, no ‘official’ red tape but a group of young people encouraged and a youthworker pumped that he was able to engage with some folk. May never see these guys again but there was a great connection for that short time.
Sometimes we build for the big moments and the programmed events…..sometimes the unexpected and fleeting moments are as important.
