Youth Sector

The youth sector in the ACT is comprised of a diverse range of non-government and government agencies, private practitioners, volunteers, programs, services and organisations that work with young people or have been established to benefit young people aged 12 - 25 years in the ACT. The Youth Coalition is committed to undertaking advocacy and representation to ensure the youth sector is viable, sustainable, dynamic and adequately resourced. This work is based upon the policy principles and commitments outlined in the Youth Coalition's Policy Platform on the ACT Youth Sector.
