Code of ethics for afterschool professionals


The NAA Code of Ethics sets standards of conduct for the afterschool professional. It was designed as a resource to assist the afterschool professional in understanding the ethical responsibilities inherent in providing afterschool programs for children ages 5-18. The following document has two sections that can be used separately or together. The first document, Statements of Ethical Conduct for Afterschool Professionals, is a brief overview expressed in broad statements to guide sound, ethical decision- making. These statements provided a framework for the creation of the second document, the NAA Code of Ethics. The NAA Code of Ethics is divided into four sections that outline the ethical responsibilities the afterschool professional has towards children, families, colleagues and the community.
