YACVic in partnership with Victoria Government is holding a series of youth forums which will help determine the agenda of the inaugural Youth Summit, to be held during National Youth Week next year. The forums are a chance for young leaders from Melbourne and regional and rural areas to get together and discuss the issues that matter most to them. Participants will elect regional representatives to the Victorian Youth Congress, a diverse group of young Victorians who will advise the Government on priority issues for today’s young people.
