10. Youth work

Last update: 18 January 2021

Youth work has a long history in the Republic of Serbia, yet its meaning and understanding has been changing in different historical settings. It has evolved from scarce humanitarian care activities to the recognised profession. Main legal framework is given in the National Youth Strategy (2015-2025) and the Law on Youth. Besides the Ministry of Youth and Sports the main body credited for professionalisation of youth work is the National Association of Youth Workers (NAPOR).
