The YWA would like to take a moment to advise all our members and friends about the upcoming webinar from VicHealth. This would be a fantastic opportunity for youth workers to gain some insight into what it is like to be a young person throughout these ever-changing and unpredictable times. This session could be valuable to all that work in the sector and could be seen as an extra resource to inform youth workers adapting to the unique challenges current young people face.

Re-imagining Young People’s Futures: including young voices in policy solutions
Wednesday 31 March 2021, from 10am to 11.30am.
“In this webinar, young people from the ‘Reimagining Young People’s Futures’ Youth Steering Group will share their experiences and insights. The conversation will highlight to policymakers how a range of issues impact the lives of young people and their ability to be active members of society. You’ll also hear from Dr Megan Lim and Dr Stephen Carbone about the ‘Coping with COVID’ survey and what can be done to support young people as we build back better.
Through this event, attendees will have a better understanding of how COVID-19 has changed the lives of young people, particularly their social connections, living arrangements and education. We hope that policymakers will consider what is shared and use it to shape future decisions, legislation and guidelines.”
