Victorian Youth Congress | Youth Central

Young people from across Victoria are making their voices heard as members of the first Victorian Youth Congress.

The Youth Congress is an advisory group of young people aged 12 to 25 who are working with government to inform policy, program and service developments. Members of Youth Congress come from different backgrounds and areas across Victoria. They also bring diverse skills and experience to Youth Congress deliberations.

The Youth Congress meets every six weeks to discuss priority issues identified during the 2017 Youth Summit and this year’s focus is on mental health and wellbeing.

The Congress is a key part of the Victorian Government’s Youth Policy: Building Stronger Youth Engagement in Victoria.
