This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 9 July 2019 to 2 August 2019. Below is a record of the consultation process.
We are inviting young people aged 12-24 to help shape a new three-year Youth Action Plan for South Australia.
What is being decided?
We are developing a Youth Action Plan for South Australia and invite young people aged 12-24 to tell us how we can work better together to achieve the best outcomes for young South Australians on the issues that most concern them.
From previous reports, we have identified four key areas that are important to young people:
- Learn and Earn
- Connect and Grow
- Wellbeing and the Environment
- Fairness and Inclusion
We will use these four areas as a foundation for engaging with young people and stakeholders across the development of the Youth Action Plan.
How can your input influence the decision?
We want to hear many different voices so that the Youth Action Plan is representative of South Australia’s diversity. We want to involve young people at all stages of development – designing, delivering and reviewing – to make sure we are targeting their needs and designing actions that will make a difference.
To achieve this, we will be forming a Youth Panel to help design a three-year Youth Action Plan for South Australia with other young people, representatives from government and representatives from key non-government organisations.
How can you get involved?
We invite you to take part in the development of the Youth Plan:
- Learn more about the Youth Panel and then nominate to join before 9am on Monday 29 July 2019
- Complete the online survey and help us understand young people's priorities
- Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Join the online discussion
How will your input be used?
The input of young people at this stage will inform the design of the Youth Action Plan. At later stages, we’ll be checking in again with young people and the broader community on the draft Youth Action Plan.
What are the next steps?
Learn more about what is planned for future stages and how you can get involved in them on the background page.
The Youth Action Plan is expected to be finalised by the end of 2019 and implemented from 2020.
