  6. 6. socializationThe socialization function of youth work refers to attachinga young person into the culture, society and surroundingcommunities.According to a study, young people find it significant thatthe youth workers encountered on the Internet areprofessional adults. Similarly, they feel that it would beimportant to have online youth workers from the samearea they are from 23.1.2013 Marcus Lundqvist,
  7. 7. individualizationThe individualization function refers to supporting the growthof a young person into a self, an independent individualaware of one’s needs and goals. Here, the starting point islistening to, recognizing and respecting the young person’sneeds.In Web-based youth work, online youth information andcounselling services offer information pages as well asdelayed question-answer services 23.1.2013 Marcus Lundqvist,
  8. 8. compensationThe starting point of the compensation function is fixing anydeficiencies or difficulties in the socialization and individualizationfunctions. The objective is to address factors threatening equalityand non-discrimination, and to support those young people whoare in the weakest position in society.Web-based youth work reduces the differences in the livingconditions of young people. It allows young people to gain accessto at least some of the same services regardless of their place ofresidence. 23.1.2013 Marcus Lundqvist,
