Commonwealth Youth Worker Awards Ceremony 2016

In its fourth year, the Commonwealth Youth Worker Awards will celebrate youth workers across the Commonwealth for their dedication to improving young lives and their positive contributions to society.

Finalists have been shortlisted from each Commonwealth region - Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, Europe, and the Pacific – based on their work in using sport and arts programmes to empower young citizens.

At this ceremony, the Commonwealth Youth Worker of the Year in each region will be revealed. The overall Commonwealth Youth Worker of the Year, drawn from the regional winners, will also be named.

The ceremony falls during Commonwealth Youth Work Week 2016, held from 7-13 November, under the theme ‘Empowering young people through sport and arts’.

Please note, the ceremony is invite-only.
