Call for Youth Panel nominations


Young people aged 12 to 24 across the state are being encouraged to join a panel that will inform the development of a new three-year Youth Action Plan for South Australia.

The plan will guide the State Government’s efforts to ensure the best outcomes for young South Australians in the future, including the areas of education and employment.

The Youth Panel will bring up to 50 young people together to help develop the plan through all stages of the process. It’s an exciting opportunity for young people to tell us how we can work better together so we can achieve the best outcomes for our youth in South Australia now and in the future.

Young people are invited to let us know their thoughts for our plan to ensure it represents all South Australians and in turn, will make a real difference in their lives. This includes hearing from young people living in the regions, young people with disability, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and from our LGBTIQA+ communities.

Those interested in joining the panel will need to be available to attend a workshop over the weekend of 10 and 11 August 2019.

Find out more about the Youth Panel and nominate to join before 9am Monday, 29 July 2019 on the YourSAy website.

In addition to the Youth Panel, there will be a range of opportunities for the public, government and non-government organisations, to contribute to the action plan later in the year

Young South Australians can complete an online survey to help us understand what is important to them and what they want to see addressed in the Youth Action Plan.

The survey can be completed until 2 August 2019.
