Youth workers are instrumental to the positive development of young people, ensuring young people fulfil their potential and become assets to their societies.
The Commonwealth Youth Programme promotes the professionalisation of youth work by facilitating youth work education and training, setting competency standards, celebrating good practice, and advocating for national and international youth worker associations.
Youth Work Week
Youth Work Week is a celebration of the achievements of youth workers and young people, taking place every November.
The UK National Youth Agency has organised Youth Work Week since 1993, providing an opportunity for youth organisations, youth workers and young people to highlight the value of their work.
Since 2012 the Commonwealth Secretariat has worked to expand the reach and scope of Youth Work Week across the 53 nations of the Commonwealth.
Each year sees more than a hundred Youth Work Week events taking place across the globe including youth forums, employment workshops, conferences, award ceremonies and community events.
