About this item

From the Youth Division of the Commonwealth Secretariat, this report outlines key concepts and approaches in professionalizing youth work and the extent of recognition of the profession in 35 Commonwealth member states in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Canada, Europe, and the Pacific. It analyzes progress made in ensuring quality youth work delivery for young people through its professionalization in these countries. It illustrates the benefits of youth work to young people and communities, advancements in the recognition of youth work and good practice, and the need for evidence on the benefits of building the profession and its relationship to building the personal agency of and social connectedness in young people, and youth work’s broader benefits to building peaceful, productive, and cohesive societies. It discusses the definition of youth work and its contexts, as well as professionalism; its nature and implications for delivery within a rights-based framework; youth work practice in different contexts of the Commonwealth; the history of youth work; trends and approaches in state-led or nationally coordinated youth work practices; state legislation and policy; the building of collective professional identities for youth workers and the role of professional associations; youth work practitioner education and training and its professional validation; regulations; professional supervision; financial investment and youth worker remuneration; and recommendations for the future.
