Banner for Youth Participation Workshop

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.

What to expect

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

You’ll walk away feeling motivated by strategies and tips 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.

Topics we cover

  • Discuss the fundamentals of youth engagement
  • Embed the voices of young people within your work
  • Share stories and workshop any challenges you are facing
  • Learn about YACVic’s model of youth participation (both successes and learnings)
  • Graduates are invited to join the Youth Participation Practice Network (YPPN)
