10. Youth Work

Last update: 29 March 2024

As stated in the final report of the advisory mission delegation of CoE to Cyprus in 2019, there are numerous provisions of youth work by volunteers and youth leaders in Cyprus; however, the consolidated and common understanding of youth work and the skills required for engaging in youth work is still lacking.

The Youth Board of Cyprus, as the competent government agency for youth in the country, implements a number of policies in order to reinforce youth work, increase its quality and raise awareness about it. All these policies are described in the chapter, showcasing the importance given by the Government.

At the same time, the recognition of youth work is an emerging policy field in the country, as mentioned in section 10.6. Although a formal recognition system does not yet exist in Cyprus, a lot of efforts are currently taking place in order to define the occupational standards of a youth worker.
