National Strategy for Young Australians

The former Minister for Youth, the Hon Kate Ellis MP launched the National Strategy for Young Australians on Wednesday, 14 April 2010.

The Strategy is part of the Australian Government’s ongoing process of giving young people a better deal and a voice in decisions that affect them. It will be used as a guide for future Government action to encourage and help young people take charge of their own lives.

The Strategy builds on billions of dollars of Government investment and focuses on young people aged between 12 and 24 years. At the heart of the Strategy is a vision for all young people to grow up safe, healthy, happy and resilient.

Developed with young Australians, the Strategy describes what it’s like to be young in Australia today and highlights eight priority areas for Government action now and into the future.
