Events for Youth Workers

The Youth Co run a number of events throughout the year for Youth Workers. If you are someone who works with young people please come along. 

Welcome to our new Executive Director

The Youth Coalition of the ACT has welcomed Dr Justin Barker to the role of Executive Director.

Dr Justin Barker has been working in the youth sector for almost 20 years as a youth worker, evaluator, researcher and advocate. He is an urban anthropologist and youth studies academic who has been working as a Research Fellow with the Institute of Child Protection Studies since 2011. Prior to his career as a researcher Justin was a youth worker in Adelaide and Canberra working with homeless young people. This experience led onto his PhD that examined the lives of homeless young people in Canberra, providing ethnographic insights into the conditions of youth homelessness. Justin has an extensive background in conducting research with marginalised populations and community service providers in the areas of youth and family homelessness, child youth and family services, domestic and family violence, child protection, service use by vulnerable population groups, outcome measurement, program evaluation and service improvement. Justin has collaborated with the Youth Coalition of the ACT throughout his career and is excited about returning to the youth sector.
