knowledge and understanding of youth development practice to work with young
people, and to practice accountably within established organisational policies,
procedures and protocols.

Glossary:
Critical analysis involves thinking critically, which is applying rational and logical
thinking while deconstructing information. It includes questioning, evaluating, making
judgements, finding connections and categorising information.
Organisational protocols are the guidelines, rules and regulations of an organisation
including its legal requirements, policies, procedures, templates and processes.
Positive youth development means building on young people’s strengths, interests,
skills, and abilities to support their transition from childhood to adulthood. It focuses
on engaging youth to take responsibility for their own well-being and that of their
wider community, now and in the future.
Positive youth development initiative means a specific intervention, activity or
programme of activities designed, using positive development principles,
philosophies and practices, to produce a positive outcome for a young person or
group of young people.
Practice supervision is a contracted relationship with a skilled peer who provides a
safe context to reflect on and review aspects of, or episodes in, a professional’s
practice. It involves a worker meeting with an independent person who has
advanced experience, knowledge and practice skills, including skills in supervisory
practice. Practice supervision happens either inside or outside the workplace in a
confidential setting.
Resources include but are not limited to: financial resources; information resources;
human resources such as employees; people from other organisations and
volunteers; equipment, materials and facilities.
Stakeholders are people and organisations who have an interest in a project or
initiative including: colleagues, service users, funders, policy makers, and the
communities the organisation interacts with including iwi, Pasifika communities, local
and regional governments and their agencies.
Tangata whenua refers to the whānau, hapū and iwi who are recognised as the
traditional occupiers of the land within a specific district/rohe.
Treaty partnership means working within the articles and intentions of the Treaty of
Waitangi/Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Youth/young people are people between the ages of 12 and 24.
Youth participation is the voluntary and informed involvement of young people in their
school, neighbourhood and wider community. It is facilitated by processes used to
create opportunities for young people to influence, inform, shape, design and
contribute to activities or projects of concern to young people.
