Victorian Youth Congress
Applications for the Victorian Youth Congress have now closed and the selection of members to youth congress is being undertaken. Stay tuned to Youth Central for more information about the Victorian Youth Congress as it becomes available.
The Victorian Youth Congress is a flagship project under the Victorian Government’s Youth Policy: Building Stronger Youth Engagement in Victoria.
The Congress will involve 20 young Victorians, aged 12 to 24, who will engage in dialogue with the State Government on priority issues that were identified by young people through the Victorian Government’s Youth Summit on 31 March 2017.
Members of the Victorian Youth Congress will consult young people from across the state to further develop ideas and proposals on these priority issues, which will then be discussed with the Minister for Youth Affairs, other ministers and representatives from state government departments.
The Congress is a key part of the Victorian Government’s Youth Policy: Building Stronger Youth Engagement in Victoria. It will provide an engagement channel for young people to shape change and connect with government.
