The Youth Coalition is the peak youth affairs body in the Australian Capital Territory

We are responsible for representing the interests of people aged between 12 and 25 years, and those who work with them.

The Annual Yogie Awards (the YOGIES) recognise, celebrate, promote and reward outstanding practice in working with young people in the ACT and surrounding area. The YOGIES highlight the exceptional commitment, talent and innovation that exist in the youth sector.


We undertake a range of advocacy work that aims to raise awareness of emerging issues to both government and to the broader community.


The Youth Coalition is a key body for information about policy relating to young people in the ACT. We have a range of general policy positions that are outlined in our Policy Platform.
