Code of Ethics for Youth Work in Aotearoa New Zealand
01 January 2012
Ara Taiohi, New Zealand's peak youth work body, has launched the first government-endorsed Code of Ethics for youth workers with the Ministry of Youth Development.
The Code of Ethics for Youth Work in Aotearoa New Zealand (2nd edition) provides a universal quality standard for youth work in New Zealand. The introduction of the Code of Ethics defines the core values of youth work practices and sets a benchmark for the level of professional service that young people can expect from their youth worker.
The Code of Ethics is aligned to the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa which provides a framework for effective youth development opportunities and programmes.
Copies of the Code of Ethics are available:
