    Ethical Practice with Young People Training for Environmental Volunteer Managers (VIC)

    Thursday, July 27th, 2023
    9am - 12pm

    This session will provide some basic theory and guidance on developing strategies for ethical practice in your group. It will also include a facilitated discussion with other environmental volunteer managers. 

    If you work with young people, you will often face ethical dilemmas: situations where you have to decide the right thing to do.

    What to expect

    You'll walk away feeling motivated and equipped by the framework of the Code of Ethical Practice (the Code) and how it can be used to enhance your group's work with young people.

    This interactive training session includes some introductory theory and guidance for using the Code in your practice. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and reflective practice as well as strategies for developing ethical practice in your role/organisation. 

    YACVic are committed to access and inclusion. Throughout the training we have 2 ten minute breaks, enable Zoom's automatic captioning and provide image descriptions of visuals used. If you require extra support to attend the session, we can book in live captioning and/or Auslan interpreter's.  

    Topics we cover

    • Why is a Code of Ethical Practice and why is it so important for involving young people?
    • What are ethics anyway?
    • Background to the Code
    • Youth work principles, responsibilities and how they apply in a volunteer context
    • How do I deal with an ethical dilemma when engaging young volunteers?

    If you can't make this session and would like to speak with Finnley about the possibility of training for you and your team please complete our online enquiry form.
