Youth Voice

The Youth Voice is how young mob can get involved on the journey to Treaty.  

Treaty is going create change for generations to come – that’s why we need our young people to help shape it.

The Youth Voice is an initiative of the Assembly that brings young mob together and empowers them to get involved in the journey to Treaty. It is led by two Assembly Members, elected as Youth Voice Convenors.

The role of the Youth Voice is to…

  • Teach young people about the Treaty process.
  • Listen and respond to their aspirations for Treaty.
  • Connect young people to Country, community and culture.
  • Help build young people’s leadership and participation.

The Youth Voice will work with and be guided by the Elders’ Voice and give young people opportunities to learn about the resilience, survival and activism of our Elders who have walked before us.

How to get involved

The Youth Voice will be holding yarns, forums and activities across Victoria. These activities aim to provide a space for young mob to talk about our history, connect with other young people and emerging leaders in Community, learn from Elders, and practice our culture. 

There will also be mentorship opportunities and Youth Voice resources available online.

Youth Voice activities are open to all young First Peoples with ties to Victoria who are aged 12 to 28. Parents, teachers, caregivers and youth workers can come also along to support their young mob.

If you have any questions, reach out to the Youth Voice Coordinator.
