Shape Victoria’s new youth strategy | Youth Central

Each young Victorian is an expert in their own lives. That’s why we want to hear young people’s ideas and work together to set a shared vision for the future.

Victoria is getting a new youth strategy and every young person in the state is invited to join the conversation.

We are committed to creating a Victoria where all young people are healthy and safe, and empowered to contribute to the issues that affect them. We want every single young person to have equitable access to opportunities and support to participate fully in the social, economic and civic life of our state.

Young people need to be at the centre of this strategy, and we will work in partnership with young people to develop it.

For the next two months, young people can have their say by filling out a short online survey, making a written submission or joining a series of forums being held online across the state. Consultation will remain open until Monday 14 December 2020.

The Victorian Government is partnering with youth sector organisations including the Youth Affairs Council Victoria, Koorie Youth Council, Centre for Multicultural Youth, Minus 18 and the Youth Disability Advocacy Service to make sure the forums are inclusive, safe and reach a diverse range of voices. Please register to get involved. 

A new youth strategy for Victoria will give young people, organisations and the broader community the opportunity to direct work across every corner of government now and into the future. 

If you’ve never got involved in a consultation process like this before, now is your time – we want to hear from you!
