What is the Australian Youth Representative Program?
Participate in a consultation.
Each year, the Youth Representative carries out a national Listening Tour to consult with young people 12 to 25 to understand the diversity of experiences and perspectives of Australia’s youth. A young person themself, the Youth Representative travels to their communities and the spaces they occupy, whether that be from schools to youth councils to community organisations. The voices of young people will inform the Youth Representative’s contributions to dialogues at the United Nations and fora within Australia.
Consultations for this year’s Listening Tour, led by Angelica Ojinnaka, are now being planned. We invite young people and organisation leaders to express your interest in hosting an interactive, workshop-based consultation with Angelica, co-designed to best support the young people who make up your group. Our passionate Youth Representation Team, all run by young people, organise 100s of consults across all cities of Australia. With no fees or charges*, our primary aim is to engage, listen and elevate as many young voices as possible so Angelica can champion a representative understanding and voice of young people.
Please submit all requests for consultations (expressions of interest) through this form. One of our dedicated Tour Managers will collaborate closely with you to ensure we design an impactful and meaningful consultation. Any questions but not requests for consultations can be directed to email@example.com.
