The youth work service was introduced in the Gozo College and Sixth form Sir Michelangelo Refalo in October 2016.
At the College students can benefit from youth and social clubs in both the Middle and Secondary school throughout the mid-day break. The Youth worker also assists in the Middle School council who together with other clubs organise activities for the students to participate in during the scholastic year.
The Agenzija Zghazagh youth worker serves as a youth information point promoting various projects and initiatives run by Agenzija Zghazagh. The aim of the youth work service within schools is to work within educational institutions to provide young people with informal and non-formal learning opportunities which can enhance their development.
At Sir Michelangelo Sixth Form, the youth worker is providing the service through the Youth Hub twice a week. The Youth Hub offers an informal and recreational environment through which the youth worker can build a healthy relationship with young people.
As a result of this relationship the youth worker can work with young people so that they can come up with projects and initiatives that enhance both their personal and social skills that in turn influence their educational attainment and employability.
