The Youth Workers’ Association are proud to present our 2016-2019 Strategic Plans. This plan was endorsed by our Board at our AGM in December 2016. Let us know what you think.
Since 2008 the Youth Workers’ Association (YWA) was revitalised with a new board and since has been actively participating in policy discussions, international study tours, participation in international conferences, implementation of numerous professional development sessions covering contemporary sector issues and more. Since its inception in 2008 the board developed a business model and are currently looking at the future sustainability of the YWA by building a financial model of membership.
Major achievements to date:
Professional Development days
Keeping members informed
Strategic Planning session
A major conference in collaboration with Victoria University’s Youth Work program in 2016.
Meeting with Minister Jenny Mikakos.
This strategic plan is designed to build on these achievements to work towards and achieve our strategic vision. It contains six areas, each containing a set of objectives and related tasks. This plan will be reviewed annually by the YWA board of management and report on its progress and achievements at the AGM.
We invite members to consider how they may like to participate or contribute to any of the goals we have set ourselves. Come and join us to continue to profile this unique profession that makes such an important contribution in the lives of so many young people. We need to have a voice as a profession if we are to be strong advocates for social justice and change for young people.
