Event: Commonwealth Youth Work Week 2019

The Commonwealth Youth Work Week will be celebrated across the 53 member countries from 4-10 November.

This year’s theme is ‘youth work in action’. It draws attention to the extraordinary services of full-time practitioners and volunteers – recognised as youth workers - who support the personal development and empowerment of young people.  

We are inviting people from member countries to share stories, photos, videos and any other relevant content showcasing the valuable work of youth workers. 

England’s National Youth Agency has organised Youth Work Week since 1993.

Content can be shared using #CommonwealthYouth and #YWW19 and make sure to tag and follow us on:
