Against the backdrop of youth work in Australia, this article explores the need for the professionalisation of youth work. It describes some of the reasons that professionalisation is resisted and the dilemmas of focusing the professionalisation initiative on either ethical or industrial considerations as a starting point. In conclusion it is argued that youth affairs' peak organisations need to take the lead in convening forums and discussions to move along the professionalisation of youth work.
