Youth Work Week is an annual initiative by the Commonwealth Secretariat that highlights the contribution and achievements of youth work, youth workers, and youth organizations throughout the 53 Commonwealth member countries.
Commonwealth Youth Worker Awards will be celebrating outstanding youth workers across the Commonwealth who are instrumental to the positive development of young people.
Finalists will be shortlisted from each Commonwealth region – Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, Europe, and the Pacific – with one person ultimately selected as the Commonwealth Youth Worker of the Year in each region
Nominations will be assessed according to:
Impact on young people’s lives – evidence of how the youth worker has made an impact on the lives of young people
Impact on the wider community – the impact the youth worker’s intervention had on the community and families
Quality of their interventions – evidence of the use of youth work principles, methods and sustainable approaches
Innovation and learning – evidence of creativity in overcoming the challenges of delivery and in application of youth work theory
