Youth Voice

Championing the issues that matter most to young Australians.

Man reading from a piece of paper

Youth Voice is a groundbreaking initiative that positions young people as experts to create solutions to the most pressing challenges that they are facing. 

We deliver scenario-based online workshops led by young people that activates decision-making skills and support students to design ethical decisions, responses and strategies based on data.  

Youth Voice 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.  

Teachers will benefit from:

  • Build ethical capabilities of students 
  • Understand how data and surveys are used by partners to build skills and capabilities
  • Provide an opportunity for underrepresented students to be heard and design solutions to challenges that impact them

Students will:

  • Share connections and experiences with young people from other schools 
  • Gain an understanding and trust in the process and decision making
  • Safe and supportive space to explore solutions
  • Potential to influence their peers
  • Certificate of participation

In order to participate, schools must be able to nominate a point of contact to liaise with Prince's Trust Australia prior to the workshop . They must also organise a supervising teacher to accompany students during the workshop, organise a physical space for students to participate in the workshop , arrange for a teacher to support students and actively participate during the workshop , select appropriate students that will benefit from participating in this workshop , and organise any required parental consent or permission forms for students to attend .
