ACYCP is proud to announce that it is joining forces with FICE USA.
A global world requires global partners especially when it comes to meeting the needs of young people. For over 10 years ACYCP has partnered with FICE USA and FICE International. FICE represents an international network uniting diverse nations through a common vision: to promote the highest standards of services for children and young people and to create positive environments for these children through carefully developed systems of care.
ACYCP members now can get more involved with global youth work by joining the ACYCP - FICE USA Council.
ACYCP has a long tradition of working with and supporting the work of FICE USA.
Delivering professional development workshops on child and youth care competencies across Australia, the first ACYCP representative to FICE was Professor Karen Vander Ven from the University of Pittsburgh.
Together with ACYCP Board Members, Professor Vander Ven, Professor Carol Kelly, Professor Martha Mattingly, and Sr. Madeleine, eventually led training on quality care, professional practice, and evidence-based strategy at more than 25 FICE conferences around the world.
ACYCP has engaged in international action to professionalize child and youth care workers over the past 50 years. Examples include providing environmental and outdoor education in Spain and Japan which was led by Board Member, Will Greenaway. Joining a worldwide initiative to prevent violence, ACYCP Treasurer Hector Sapien traveled to El Salvador to teach trauma-informed care.
Global articles by Past ACYCP President Andy Schneider-Munoz and Karen Vander Ven were read this year by more than 418,018 people around the world. You may want to read After School Around the Globe or Adolescent Psychology in Today’s World: Global Perspectives.
