ACT Youth Work Code of Ethical Practice

The ACT Youth Work Code of Ethical Practice provides a framework for safe, ethical, and professional youth work practice. The Code has been developed for, by and with the ACT Youth Sector. It revises and builds upon the previous work done by the sector over 15 years ago.

The Code articulates the principles and values that underpin youth work practice, the elements that characterise and distinguish youth work from other professions, and the responsibility of youth workers to maintain a high level of professionalism. Ethical practice is essential because youth workers often work with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in our community. This Toolkit will support youth workers and their employers to embed ethical youth work into their practice and programs.
