Consultation has concluded. Thanks for your contributions.

We are inviting you to tell us your ideas about the key issues affecting young people in South Australia.

What's being decided?

We are developing South Australia’s Youth Action Plan 2023-2026 to enhance fair and equitable access to opportunities, resources and supports for young people.

We invite all young people, stakeholder organisations and anyone with an interest in young people to tell us their ideas about the key issues affecting young people in South Australia.

Background

Young people hold the key to creating a better future and deserve to be taken seriously, listened to and included in important conversations.

Young people demonstrate many strengths – including creativity, resilience, empathy, independence, collaboration and innovation. However, there are also areas where we need to take action to ensure that all young people can flourish. We are proposing that SA’s Youth Action Plan has five key areas for action:

  1. Physical Health, and Social and Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
  2. Safety and Justice
  3. Education and Employment
  4. Connections and Access to Resources
  5. Citizenship and Participation

What are the next steps?

We will collate, analyse and use your feedback to develop the final plan, which will then be submitted to the Minister for Human Services for adoption.

If you could only change one thing...

If you could change only one thing for young people in South Australia, what would it be?

Consultation has concluded. Thanks for your contributions.

If I could change only one thing for young people in South Australia, it would be to prioritize and enhance holistic development support. This means providing comprehensive and integrated programs that address not only the educational and employment needs of young individuals but also their physical health, mental well-being, social connections, and participation in decision-making processes.

By focusing on holistic development, young people in South Australia would have access to a wide range of resources and opportunities that nurture their overall well-being and potential. This approach recognizes that the different aspects of a young person's life are interconnected, and supporting their holistic development can lead to more resilient, empowered, and thriving individuals who can contribute positively to their communities and society as a whole.
