"I wish the government knew how worried I am about the impacts of climate change on our world. The environment is a very important issue that deserves more serious consideration from those in the position to make changes." Ella, 19, NSW.

Victoria leads the way in supporting LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing. But despite advances in achieving equality and cultural acceptance, LGBTIQ+ young people still regularly experience discrimination, marginalisation and bullying, which have profound negative impacts on their wellbeing. Learn how youth work can create safe and celebratory spaces, affirm and support young people across the rainbow of sexual and gender identities.

YACVic Young Thinker in Residence Alert #2!

Hi, my name is Brittany and I’m a Young Thinker in Residence at the Youth Affairs Council Victoria. When I stumbled upon the Young Thinker in Residence program I though that this was an amazing opportunity! I applied immediately with one topic already in mind—young care leavers. Raising awareness for young care leavers and the difficulties they face while transitioning out of care is something I am very passionate about.
I have always had a passion for working with people and especially young people. I have worked previously as a youth worker and am now studying a Bachelor of Community Mental Health and Alcohol and other Drugs at Chisholm institute full time. I also volunteer part time at 4Cs crisis center, which is an incredible community support organisation. My goal is to complete a master’s in social work.
Starting at YACVic was both nerve wracking and exciting. My first day was spent meeting the team and getting to know the organisation, everyone was and continues to be tremendously supportive and welcoming. I also met with the other young thinker in residence, Annika, who is brilliant and I am glad to have someone to share this experience (and lunch) with.

My YACVic project so far is still in its thinking and researching stage. I’m interested to see where my research takes me, and what I can produce with the support of the YACVic team, mentors, and other supportive organisations. It’s going to be a busy 12 weeks, but I’m looking forward to gaining knowledge and experience, and meeting new people along the way. Thank you to YACVic for this amazing opportunity!
We are so excited to have the Young Thinkers on board at YACVic and are thrilled to welcome you Brittany! . . . . . #youngthinker #youngthinkersinresidence #YTiR #familyviolence #DV #FV #leavingcare #careleaver #caresystem #transitions #communityservices #vicyouth #youthmatters #youthwork #youthworkers #youthadvocacy #youthvoice #youthservices #ausyouth #youngpeople #youngpeoplerock #youthworkmatters #advocacy #youthvoices

🔈In September, the government will be sending every enrolled Australian over 18 a letter in the mail. It's your chance to have your say on marriage equality, but you have to be enrolled to vote to get one. You have 8 days left to make sure you're enrolled, and you can do it online in no time. Just head to our Facebook and check out the how-to video 👍🏻Tell your mates, and make your votes count! 📸:@dallasclayton #auspol #vicyouth #plebiscite #marriageequality #vote

S E C T O R D E F I N I N G 〰〰〰 Front + Centre will bring together youth workers from community, government and for-purpose agencies to shape the future of the youth sector.

We’ll explore the hot topics, tackle the big questions and discuss new research and good practice.

We’re talking three days jam-packed with inspiring presentations, thought-provoking conversations and hands-on workshops from some of the most renowned thinkers and doers in youth work. If you work in anything even vaguely related to young people, Front + Centre has something for you! Link in profile ✌🏻✌🏽✌🏿 .

Sarah presented to HYPA after a family breakdown. She was couch surfing for a period of time, but quickly ran out of safe and stable accommodation options. HYPA was able to support Sarah with her immediate needs upon presentation and she has since moved into supported accommodation. Sarah is now planning for her future and has goals to study at TAFE and gain employment. Sarah is currently on a pathway out of homelessness and will be supported by HYPA for the period she needs to become independent.
Transitioning young people from a life of homelessness to one of prosperity is something we are passionate about at HYPA. The road can be a complex journey, but young people have incredible resilience and the strength and capacity to create positive change in their lives. Homelessness Week is a great opportunity to highlight the great outcomes young people, like Sarah, are achieving when the appropriate support networks are in place.
NB The name of this young person has been changed to protect their identity.

A big thank you to @influencersadlcity for their generous donation of blankets for our young people. With a Code Blue emergency winter response activated for the metro area, the blankets will definitely come in handy to share with young people to keep warm during this very cold spell.

How cool is visiting Parliament House and getting a selfie with the PM??? One of our young people, Lennon, had this very opportunity recently when he visited Canberra as part of his participation with ‘National Indigenous Youth Parliament – training our future leaders‘. This program is organised by the Australian Electoral Commission for future Indigenous leaders from around the country who want to learn more about the government and how parliament works. The young people participated in a mock parliamentary debate in front of the speaker on issues affecting their communities, which was an amazing experience. Lennon has returned from Canberra with a desire to be a role-model and mentor for his peers and wants to help more Indigenous Australians have a voice and be represented in parliament. This may not be the last time we see Lennon at Parliament House.

Super-inspiring words from @nekaro at a talk yesterday where we got to hear from people involved in the @berniesanders2016 campaign where #youngpeople were engaged like NEVER before. The biggest group of donators to the @berniesanders campaign was under 27s! Young people are a force to be reckoned with and we'll see more of this in the future. BELIEVE IT. #obama #emailsnotdead #youthvote #youthvotes #edmstyle .
