I spotted this over on Dylan’s blog, go check it out:

As with many infographics this data is based from America, but it has much to apply to the UK situation.  Some key points

1. Use of technology –  75% on a social networking site and 20% having posted a video. This is a generation who socialise, create content and believe in the use of technology in all spheres of life. How as youth workers are we using technology beyond having a Facebook page or showing YouTube clips?

2. Without a religion – 25% are without a religion. Are we as youth workers telling the same gospel story that we heard? How are we retelling the story of the gospel to this generation of fresh ears, does the emphasis need to change?

3. Unemployment – With youth employment at an all time high in th UK. How are youth workers preparing a generation for potential unemployment?
