Using big data insights, statistical analysis, and best practice program design, Prince’s Trust Australia and Resilient Youth have paired up to bring youData Decisions, a groundbreaking initiative that positions young people as experts to create solutions to the most pressing challenges that they are facing.  

Research tells us that bullying is a major concern for many young Australians. We know that social media and the increasing use of smartphones have contributed to anxiety and experiences of bullying on a 24-hour cycle, especially for students in Years 8 and 9.  The reality is that most young people are either doing, seeing, or experiencing bullying. 

Data Decisions brings together students from across Australia that are not in formalised leadership positions – this is a chance for young people who may not have a voice to be heard.
