Victorian Rural Youth Services (VRYS)

The Victorian Rural Youth Services (VRYS) initiative promotes research, training and policy development to support the rural youth sector. It encourages the Victorian community to be more aware of the strengths of young people and the workers who support them in rural areas, and to take further action to address the disadvantages rural communities can face.

The VRYS initiative produces research and policy advice to government and the community on key issues of importance to the rural youth sector and young people. View policy papers.

We also run a calendar of youth participation workshops around the state each year, for workers and young people.

The rural initiative maintains an e-bulletin, Signposts, which includes links to terrific new resources, events, training options, surveys and examples of good practice from rural communities. To subscribe to Signposts and to hear more about events please contact Joanna Hatcher, Rural Youth Services Officer at This email address is being protected from spambots.

This initiative is funded by the State Government of Victoria, guided by a network of rural youth support services and allied organisations, and operates through the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria.
