A Brief History of CAYWA

The alliance, which was set up by a steering committee formed during the Commonwealth Conference on Youth Work in South Africa in March 2016, was formally launched this week at the 9th Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting in Uganda.

In a joint communique, ministers and senior government representatives said they “commended the role and work" of CAYWA.

The alliance’s newly appointed board, chaired by Professor Robyn Broadbent from Australia, represents youth worker organisations in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, Europe and the Pacific. Board members come from Zambia, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Jamaica, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Australia.
