Supporting Youth Workers with a code of ethics; a valuable tool for supporting quality youth work practice.
Youth Work SA exists to develop professional Youth Work practice across South Australia to ensure high quality support for young people.
Part of the existence of Youth Work SA is to support Youth Workers with a code of ethics, which helps to “maintain relationships that are truthful and honest, which generally become more helpful and life-giving … with a vision of working truthfully, compassionately and with a commitment to the highest possible form of care for both the client and the self.” (Dr. Phil Daughtry, 2014, Working With Young People Part 1).
The code of ethics is a valuable tool for supporting quality youth work practice, and to clarify what youth work is. This training will be perfect for:
- Those new to Youth Work (e.g., Youth Work students)
- Those new to the Code of Ethics
- Seasoned Youth Workers looking to brush up their skills
- Those familiar with the Code of Ethics looking to deepen their thinking around its application
This training will be delivered as an interactive discussion-based workshop.
Tickets are $20 and available for purchase here.
Supported by Tabor College – Leading Education in Community Professions. Tabor offers a Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Youth Work) and is keenly interested in supporting the upskilling of current Youth Workers for the benefit of young people.
