What We Do

-

Youth Action is the peak body representing young people and the services that support them in NSW. We advocate for positive change on issues affecting these groups.

 

 

Our vision is for a society where all NSW young people are supported, engaged, valued and their rights are realised.

 

Principles that underpin our work:

We give a particular focus to regional young people, First Nations young people, those doing it tough, those with disability, LGBTIQA+ and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, including migrants and refugees.
We use a rights-based lens to focus on programs, policy and advocacy that achieve meaningful outcomes, embed strengths-based approaches and are informed by data and evidence.
We are an ally to the self-determination of First Nations communities, are led by the expertise of young people and the Sector and are a trust-worthy partner and collaborator.

Working towards our vision, the Youth Action 2021-2024 Strategic Plan outlines our strategy over the next three years.

-

In building the Plan we heard from a diverse range of young people and the services that support them in NSW, together with our Members, the Youth Action Board and Team.

We would like to thank everyone who provided feedback, and we look forward to driving our collective goals together over the coming years, to help make NSW a better place for young people.
