YACVic values your contributions to our current policy work. We would like to encourage you to share your thoughts, experiences and ideas with us so that we can better represent the youth sector in our work.
We're thrilled to announce that YACVic's new online toolkit, Yerp, will launch in early 2014.
YACVic’s 2004 ‘Taking Young People Seriously’ handbooks led the way for youth participation in Victoria. Yerp modernises the handbooks in an information-packed website perfectly suited to smartphones and mobile devices.
Its unique, fun design has been developed in consultation with over 300 young people and youth sector workers throughout Victoria.
Yerp supports one big idea – that young people have an important role in shaping the present and future of Victoria’s communities.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) is seeking opportunities to align existing effort to provide a contemporary program and policy environment that will better engage vulnerable young people in learning.
Although most young Victorians are doing well, a small but significant number experience barriers to positive health and wellbeing outcomes.
