Throughout April and May, 2015 the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria’s Rural Youth Service is running a series of four fun and interactive training workshops that will equip young people with the skills they need to create change, better understand themselves and their potential, work well together and have a greater impact in their community.
On Tuesday March 24 Mitchell Shire Council’s Youth Services team will host the second of YACVic’s Forums Series 2015: Local Government Youth Services Forums in Wallan. The eight-part series of forums hosted by YACVic across metro, rural and regional Victoria, is designed for LGA youth services coordinators, LGA youth workers, and other LGA team members keen to engage well with young people. YACVic's Victorian Rural Youth Service Initiative (VRYS) is hosting four of these in rural and regional areas throughout Victoria.
Over the next few months YACVic will host an eight-part series of forums across metro, rural and regional Victoria designed for LGA youth services coordinators, LGA youth workers, and other LGA team members keen to engage well with young people.
YACVic, in partnership with VCOSS, the Council to Homeless Persons and the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare will host a forum for the youth sector on the recent Federal budget and how it might impact both young people and the sector that supports them.

The Parks Have It forum was the result of a partnership between the Department of Planning and Community Development, the Office for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship, the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria and Parks Victoria.
The purpose of the form was to explore young people's engagement with the natural environment by providing an opportunity to share innovative ways to engage young people in environmental issues, inspire participation and promote the benefits of the outdoors. The forum started with a welcome from Kate Colvin, the Chief Executive Officer at YACVic, who introduced how the forum will bring together ideas around young people's wellbeing, nature and participation.
