Fragment of a discussion from Talk:Ipyet/Introduction to Youth Development Practice
- Young People's rights are the rights youths have to choose what skills to have and the right on where to work and stay.
- Decent Work is work that that is fit enough for youths and adults and earns a reasonable income for the person doing it. "Decent work sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration, freedom for people to express their concerns, organize and participate in the decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men" (ILO, 2011:1).
- Code of Ethics and Conduct is a set of principles that govern the way people must behave towards each other and the environment in a community or organisation.
- Power is the ability for a person to do something when they want and how they want.
- Influence is the ability for a person or group of persons to change a person's or groups behaviour or speech into a particular direction whether good or bad.
