This chapter explains youth work is a professional practice in which clients, at a point of vulnerability, are engaged in an intentionally limited relationship directed towards the transformation of their situation. The chapter then examines who the client is, the vulnerabilities of the client, the sphere of action, the transformation, and codes of ethics. An international code of ethics for youth work is then presented. 62 references.
