Code of Ethics for Youth Work in Aotearoa - Noho Marae

Wanna be a good youth worker or a great one? 

Our young people deserve the best from us, so let's get equipped for the mahi.

Code of Ethics training is essential for all youth workers and a prerequisite for membership with the Canterbury Youth Workers Collective.

About the Code of Ethics Noho Marae

We're excited to launch into our third year of running our Code of Ethics Training as a noho marae. A Noho Marae is an overnight marae stay. Being part of the bicultural journey, this is required of all participants.

The Code of Ethics for Youth Work in Aotearoa New Zealand defines key values and standards for youth workers in Aotearoa New Zealand. Developed around the six principles of the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa, the Code is comprised of 27 clauses critical to effective, ethical youth work practice and practical examples of how they might apply in youth work. 

It's not just what you can't do. It's about growing in solid youth development practice for our rangatahi and celebrating the unique and necessary approach that defines youth work.

The Code of Ethics for Youth Work in Aotearoa does not have a 'Treaty clause', instead a commitment to biculturalism is woven throughout the document.  In order to have our Ethics Training better reflect this, and on the advice of our Tangata Whenua Kaitohutohu (advisory group) we decided to move the training to the marae. Don't be shy! We know many of our Youth Workers haven't had the opportunity to stay at a marae before, but there will be a lot of value for your personal and professional development by weaving this in with Ethics training.
