10. Youth Work

Youth work is becoming a field highly appreciated in the field of youth. The Youth Board of Cyprus, as the competent government agency for youth in the country, implements a number of policies in order to reinforce it, 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 and recognize youth work, the youth workers and the skills acquired through youth work.
