Youth Voices was designed as a way for young people to influence youth policy, program development and service delivery in government, schools and community organisations — to share their experiences of help and support, and to communicate what they see as a flourishing life and the supports they need to achieve that. The project has been a collaborative journey, in which young people have actively co-designed the questions; participated in the Youth Voices online research across 4 states and 15 sites; and engaged in a project workshop that brought together young people, teachers, youth workers, government policy officers and others to explore the data and how it might inform practical initiatives and outcomes for young people. Even more importantly, Youth Voices is unfolding, not just as a research project with ‘findings’ and a final report that gets neatly filed away, but as an ongoing stimulus for an inclusive conversation about what’s good for young people in schools, community organisations, and the child protection and justice systems. This report provides an overview of Youth Voices thus far: what we’ve done and why, the insights that have emerged; and possible opportunities for the future.
