Calling all young Victorians who have something important to say!
The Victorians Government’s First Youth Summit is the perfect opportunity to present your questions and your views directly to the government. The Minister for Youth Affairs, Jenny Mikakos, MP is inviting young Victorians aged between 12 and 25 to voice their ideas, be inspired by other young change makers and also help identify actions for change.
The Youth Summit is a great opportunity for young people to share important issues with the government and help shape future policies and programs for the youth.
Summit attendees will be able to:
• share views with their peers across Victoria
• hear from dynamic young leaders who are already impacting change
• participate in workshops on relevant issues such as education, employment, mental health and housing
• Identify new actions to help design policies, services and programs for youth in Victoria
