Career Development within the Community Development Industry is diverse and dynamic. World Vision Australia activities targeting the Victorian Youth segment have a significant contribution to insights about community capacity building and community empowerment based on principals that espouse strengthening social ability and reduce dependency within the society.
The relationship between early involvement by young participants and continued industry practice by the young members of the society has a been a subject of interest since it looks within the profundity of continued capacity development through experience and knowledge management skills developed within the service tenure.
World Visions continued contribution in capacity development is an integral capacity building principal within the Victorian youth segment and from this context; we learn the broad contribution and development of apprenticeship in the youth and an ostensible capacity to manage and contribute to the socio-economic growth of the community. Activities related to active roles in career based projections have implications on students (youth) throughout the period and exposure to the projections, change perception of their strategies of transition from higher education towards employment.
Exposure to poverty and work simulates concepts about human ability to live and contribute towards developing a community. Seen within research on the early development and exposure to poverty and work, we see most of those people who were exposed have a tendency to seek after very noble careers in their lives. Most that were exposed at a tender age of early childhood choose community work, while those exposed at latent age seek business and government careers.
This explicates the fact that social work concepts and the aspects of poverty within the community have become espoused values and most young people are looking in the direction of careers that reflect on the same. Based on the volunteer-ship context, a subject World Vision espouses and promotes employment opportunities. Through the argument that students extracurricular non-market activities are part of those activities that employer consider as sources of turn-over.
These extra-curricular activities cover the scope of volunteer ship in principal. www. aare. edu. au pg 3 This brings for the aspect of integration and development of skills and qualities ahead of employment opportunities within the capacity of students and the learned youth making them equitable, highly skilled and experienced and quite marketable in the job market. World Vision ethics and values within this context are intrinsically invaluable.
This is observed in its efforts to integrate capacity development through volunteer programs in the international scope and also creating community empowerment and capacity building in global communities so as to improve on the status of the community through facilitation and creating socio-economic structures that can benefit the youth and the entire community on the long term. 1. Context Change in social economic structures has led to the industry sectors to be in search for ways to engage people in the humanistic approach to economics, co-habitation and cultural harmony.
Through the scope of leading examples like World Vision, perspectives and socio perceptions on employment and capacity in the educated are parametrical with the objective of learning and practice being variables. The vision of most employers is to have skilled and developing young executives whose contribution within the company or organization is solely on the basis of projecting new dimensional growth and contribution towards better performance and creating structures that will enhance corporate and corporate policy growth.
On the World Vision perspective based on a professional level, this will require greater numbers of trained personnel and volunteers both in Australia and abroad to service the ensuing level of demand. On a social level this means we will need to “breed” more socially responsible corporate and community citizens who will fill tomorrow’s boardrooms and sustain their families.
On this context exploring the nascent issue of making concrete conclusions on the level of proficiency consistency and industry efficacy to be apt to this context is important. A survey on the demographic-like aspects of the community-industry relations through the youth and the learned within shows that the industry needs to integrate more policies within the current work and capacity building in the society through creation of equity which is through employment opportune for the learned within the community.
Research Problem Early participation in World Vision youth community development activities on current work choices of those participants is vast and contextual. The principals employed are meant to capacitate not to provide for. This is offering choice of skill and knowledge diversification rather than solving problems for the subjects. Volunteer ship within this objective culminates to imparting knowledge and skills that become integral skills that the job market seeks to employ.
As such World Vision amongst others leaders in creating skilled and empowered youth hence empower the community by increasing its capacity through these youths. The research on this issue was carried out using age and type of work done as an young person as variables and the conclusions defend the view that early exposure to the aspects of poverty and work are essential values in developing very able and committed social workers.
