Education

Advocacy in relation to education and young people has consistently been a priority for the Youth Coalition; although this work greatly increased in 2010 following the ACT and national legislation changes to education attainment, which requires young people to complete Year 10 and remain in education, training or employment until they complete Year 12 or turn 17. The Youth Coalition provides advocacy relating to young people and mental health issues in a range of cross-sectoral forums, submissions, committees and other activities, which is based upon the policy positions and commitments outlined in the Youth Coalition's Policy Platform on Education.
