youth participation 101 workshop banner

Youth participation acknowledges that young people are the experts in their own lives.

Do you need guidance to boost your youth groups, programs and advocacy? Does your team need to re-engage their passion and/or fill up their toolbox for effective youth participation?

At our Youth Participation workshop, we’ll talk about the successes you’re having and unpick the barriers you may be encountering to increase your confidence in working alongside young people.

–Commission for Children and Young People

I enjoyed the broader scope of understanding around youth participation and what this 'looks like' and how this can be further supported and embedded in my practice

Our work takes place through the lands of the Aboriginal nations within Victoria and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present. Bunjil’s lore states that those who walk on this land must care for the Country and waterways as well as care for the children and young people. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
