Youth Week 2016
Showcase of Youth-Led Initiatives

On 15 April 2016, ACYP along with Youth Action and yFoundations held a showcase of youth-led initiatives.

The following presentations demonstrate the power of youth-led innovation to create change and improve outcomes for children and young people.


The Bright Minds Project

"If we focus on mental health and make it a part of our culture and discuss it in a way that is very productive and efficient, then our attitudes around mental health will change."


The Top Blokes Foundation

"When you give boys a space where they know they aren't going to be judged, to share their opinions or share their experiences, I think that's when you're going to cut through to young men."


Wake Up - Change Starts With You

"Because we're young and they're young, we're part of a similar generation, they understand the world outside that older people just don't understand anymore."
