The Youth Coalition of the ACT is the peak youth affairs body in the ACT. Comprised of a membership of agencies, programs, and individuals, the Youth Coalition is responsible for representing and promoting the interests and wellbeing of people aged between 12 and 25 years and those who work with them.
The Youth Coalition is represented on many ACT Government advisory structures and provides advice to the ACT Government on youth affairs as well as providing information to youth services about policy and program matters. In addition to this the Youth Coalition also contributes to national youth affairs networks, activities, and policy development.
A key role of the Youth Coalition is the development and analysis of ACT social policy and program decisions for young people and youth services.
The Youth Coalition facilitates the development of strong linkages and promotes collaboration between the community, government and private sectors to achieve better outcomes for young people in the ACT.
