Youth Ethics Framework for Tasmania
The Youth Network of Tasmania (YNOT), the peak body for the youth sector, has led the development of a Youth Ethics Framework for Tasmania, in partnership with many sector representatives and organisations, through a Youth Ethics Working Group, formed in 2010.
The Youth Ethics Working Group has also been supported by input from the youth sector
in Tasmania, through participation in presentations, forums, and in response to the
Youth Ethics Framework for Tasmania Consultation Paper in early 2012.
The Framework is a voluntary guide for individual youth sector workers and organisations to
support appropriate and ethical practice when engaging with young people (12- 25 years) in
Tasmania. It also aims to provide the youth sector with a tool that promotes consistency in the
practice of youth work across the sector and be a platform for discussion on youth ethics.
YNOT and the Youth Ethics Working Group will be working with individual workers and
organisations, including volunteer groups and youth-led organisations, within the youth
sector to support the implementation of the Framework.
