Code of Ethics
The Code of Ethics defines key values and standards for youth workers in New Zealand. It’s not a how-to on youth work, but provides ethical guidance for youth workers so they can keep themselves safe in their work, and give their best to the young people they work with. The code is based around the same six principles of the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa.
