A personal reflection on why this year's Quaker youth work conference focuses on supporting young people exploring their gender.

I've been working in the children and young people's team since 2005 and I still remember the day I was interviewed. A beautiful sunny day in a really big dark room with a grandfather clock. But it's one of the interview questions that has really stuck with me – how are you going to work to explore spirituality with young Quakers?

My response was based on what I feel is the most important value in youth work. That you meet the young person where they are at and walk alongside them to understand their experiences, their thoughts and their feelings. In that walk you might share a little of yourself but the focus is on that young person and where they are at.
