What is Youth Work?
Youth Work is a professional practice undertaken by qualified practitioners. In Victoria it is underpinned by a Code of Ethical Practice (Drafted by T Corney & L Hoiles for the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria in 2007). This code is informed by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and places the young person at the centre of a Youth Workers practice as their primary consideration.
