Delinquency Prevention Social Worker Resume

The world we live in today is full of challenges and it often puts traps in the way of the young people. They can easily choose to avoid these traps, but if they fall into them, then the problems appear. Delinquency is such a problem, as, under the influence of the entourage, of the images seen on TV or of the values promoted by music and movies, the young people may become anti-social.


Delinquency can take a variety of forms: violence, theft, beating, and so on. It is a wrong attitude that promotes causing harm to the other people.

Either that or they decide to adopt such attitudes because they have a low self-esteem or because they want to be "the coolest in the school", these kinds of behaviors can harm others and even the person who performs them, and can turn into a real danger for the society as a whole.

Therefore, due to the impact of such a problem, there have to be some people who would take care of its prevention, and work with the representatives of the young generation in order to minimize its presence and effects. The delinquency prevention social worker is one of those people and his/her mission is that of creating and implementing campaigns which would help the whole community keep away from delinquency. His/ her main target would be the young, as they are the most exposed to bad influences.

In order to accomplish his tasks, he/ she must be a very balanced and patient person, very proficient with adolescents and having the ability to generate new ideas and strategies. If you are such a person and you are aiming at such a career, then here is how you should begin.
