If you work with young people, you will often face ethical dilemmas: situations where you have to decide the right thing to do.

This free session with Sam Champion, Participation and Development Coordinator at YACVic, looks through the agreed values and principles that drive youth work in Victoria.

What to expect

You’ll walk away feeling motivated and equipped by the framework of the Code of Ethical Practice (the Code) and how it can be used to enhance your work with young people.

This interactive training session includes some introductory theory and guidance for using the Code in your practice. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and reflective practice as well as strategies for developing ethical practice in your role/organisation. 

Topics we cover

  • Why is a Code of Ethical Practice so important for the youth sector?
  • What are ethics anyway?
  • Background to the Code
  • Youth work principles
  • Youth work practice responsibilities
  • How do I deal with an ethical dilemma at work?
