The Vision for the

Youth Coalition of the ACT

We aim to actively promote the human rights, well-being and aspirations of young people in the ACT community, with particular respect to their economic, political, cultural, spiritual, educational, and social development.

The Youth Coalition works to:

 

  • Promote and encourage the participation of young people in the development of policy, programs and service development
  • Raise awareness of access and equity principles and practice for young people, including direct service delivery, employment, education and participation in decision making within the community
  • Develop and maintain coordinated networks and linkages between government, non-government organisations, private sector and young people in order to establish a positive strategic vision for the ACT youth sector
  • Promote unity and collaboration within the non-government youth sector of the ACT
  • Facilitate and coordinate information dissemination between service providers, young people, government and the wider community
  • Engage in advocacy and facilitate policy debate
  • Undertake and promote sector development, encourage and demonstrate best practice approaches which assist services and the ACT Government in improving outcomes for young people and their families
  • Auspice and support the establishment of new projects or services which fill identified gaps in service provision to young people where appropriate
  • Undertake research
  • Convene and actively participate in forums and/or bodies ensuring that the issues relevant to youth organisations, employees and young people in the ACT are raised
  • Encourage, support, promote and facilitate effective professional development
  • Undertake other activities to achieve the objectives of the Youth Coalition
