Youth engagement strategy
We are creating a plan called the youth engagement strategy. The strategy will make sure young people are heard when we make decisions that affect them.
To make the strategy, we are gathering the views of young people, youth organisations, and government agencies by:
- talking with them directly
- gathering their views on our website at youth.gov.au.
