The Youth Workers’ Association is a professional association which is open to all qualified youth workers, those studying youth work and in certain circumstances those without formal qualifications but with extensive youth work experience.

Our aim is to ensure the creation and ongoing improvement of professional standards in youth work. This includes advocating for professional recognition of the unique practice, knowledge and skills of youth workers, increasing professional and ethical standards, ensuring quality youth work training is available and encouraging and promoting the ongoing professional development of youth workers.

The Association will continue to host professional development events, guest speakers and consultations with the youth sector to guide our development.
