“If we want to prevent generations of young people from replicating the cycles of disadvantage that they have been born into there must be a radical shift in how we conceptualise, engage with and work alongside them.”

–Lauren Oliver

Join the YACVic Youth Participation Practice Network (YPPN) for an in-depth examination and interactive workshop focusing on how we can work better for and with young people experiencing disadvantage in our communities.

Lauren Oliver, Senior Advisor Youth Engagement at Berry Street Childhood Institute, is developing her ‘Radical Shift’ youth participation framework in collaboration with the Victorian youth sector as part of her Winston Churchill Fellowship. Don't miss out on your chance to contribute to ground-breaking research and help define what it means to create meaningful engagement with young people. 

Read Lauren’s Churchill Fellowship Report.

This event also includes an opportunity for a limited number of participants to do a ‘project shout out’ (10 mins max per project) and an opportunity to network with other members. 

This event is brought to you by the YACVic Youth Participation Practice Network (YPPN) and Berry Street Childhood Institute, tickets are free and lunch is provided with catering by STREAT.
