You have the opportunity to ensure that your community's voice is being heard by decision-makers, whether it’s your school, sports team, dance group, community group or anything else. There are two ways to take part in ACYP's consultation program; We can come to your school or youth group; Or you can be trained with other young people on how to hold consultations. Join thousands of other children and young people who’ve already participated in ACYP's consultation program by registering below.
Classroom and group consultations involve a facilitated conversation where a number of thought-provoking questions are posed to students and their collective answers are recorded and collated. This information is then fed back to the Advocate for Children and Young People who uses this to inform the NSW Government’s work for the interests of children and young people.
Do you see yourself as a catalyst for change amongst your peers? Utilise your abilities and learn new skills to co-ordinate consultations and discussion groups with those around you and be a voice for your community.
The Advocate for Children and Young People is offering the knowledge and training materials that will enable you to take the lead in facilitating consultations and events with other children and young people. Once trained as a facilitator, you can run either small group or one-to-one consultations with children and young people.
The ideas instigated through your consultations will be used to inform decisions that affect those you’ve chosen to represent.
If you are under the age of 24 and interested in the ACYP Consultation program, please register below.
