Our Different Types of IYW Membership
Volunteer membership: Anyone whose only work with young people is in an unpaid capacity
Student membership: Anyone who is studying on a professionally qualifying youth work Degree/Masters course (Would Youth Work apprentices sit here too?)
Certified membership: Anyone who has gained their professional qualification in Youth Work as accredited by the National Youth Agency (and linked to JNC Terms and Conditions). AKA “JNC qualified”
Member membership: Anyone who does not sit neatly into one of the above membership categories. For example, a paid Youth Worker who is not studying for their professional qualification; or a (non-Youth Work qualified) academic whose interest is in Youth Work.
