The cross-purpose of this dissertation was to answer the research question of ‘Does participation in youth based events, influence a career path. Using Torfaen Youth Service Summer Camp as a case study’. The central topics of the study was motivation, what are events, interaction, and event typologies. The writer used a qualitative method: twenty interviews took place interviewing participants who attend the summer camp, and members who haven’t attended the summer camp. The writer also studied the existing academic literature surrounding Events, events typologies, Community events, Motivation, Maslow. Interaction and gender issues and lastly mentoring. The findings of the research demonstrated that females who have an emotional attachment to a career are more likely to continue in progression between that career path, also that parents and mentors have a large impact in a person chose of career or whether to attend an event. This addresses the gap in the existing academic literature relating to what influences a career path and the motivation a person has to achieve a goal. Lastly, the study’s findings can be presented to Torfaen Youth Service to aid their development of their Summer Camp to aid the development of the young people whom are in attendance, but also to help them aid their programs offered all year round.
