    Abstract

    The book tracks the history of the youth service from 1844 to 1973. It is divided into four chapters.1844-1920 Finding the Roots: Looks at the foundation of today`s service and identifies the early pioneers and their early work.1921-1959 Growing a Youth Service: In the newly formed Northern Ireland state there are parellel developments in this phase with English youth work. We see the growth of unfiormed organisations as well as non-uniformed organisations with increasing support from the government.1960-1969 From Albemarle to a `Troubled` start: Albemarle was a significant policy development in England and Wales in 1960. Northern Ireland took some inspiration from this but the bubbling under of local tensions impacted on the develpment of the service in Northern Ireland.1970-1973 The Youth Service in the Height of the Troubles: This period sees the establishment of the statutory service and the setting up of the first traning course leading to a professional qualification in youth work at the NI Polytechnic.A feature of chapters 3 and 4 is the inclusion of examples from youth workers practice taken from old diaries or personal contributions through interview.Volume 2 (1974-present) is due to follow in 2016.
