Are you committed to supporting the voice of young people? Maybe you need a little inspiration to boost your youth groups, programs and advocacy?

This free session with Sam Champion, Participation and Development Coordinator at YACVic, will re-engage your passion and fill up your toolbox for effective youth participation.

What to expect

You’ll walk away feeling motivated by strategies and tips to build on your current approach to engaging young people in the work that you do, strengthen their voices in the work of your organisation, and ultimately in the communities in which they live. 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 in your role.

This interactive training session includes some introductory theory and guidance for using Yerp. There will be lots of opportunity for discussion and reflective practice as well as strategies for developing youth participation in your role/organisation.

  • What is youth participation?
  • Principles of youth participation
