Welcome to International Youth Work Week 2017! #YWW17.
Today we are releasing the Concept Note and the game changing Baseline Report from the Commonwealth that outlines the contribution of Youth Work and their commitment to Professionalisation, which supports the work of Commonwealth Alliance of Youth Work Associations in their mission to professionalise Youth Work across the globe.
Youth Workers make a difference in young people’s lives and are an essential community partner.
"Youth workers regard young people as a social asset and resource whose potential can only be fully realised when they are recognised as young citizens with rights and, as such, personal integrity. This also means that young people need to be perceived and engaged as those ready to participate and contribute to making and developing their societies. " Youth Work in the Commonwealth- A Growth Profession Report (2017 p.9)
