Help shape Victoria’s new youth strategy

Teachers and students are encouraged to have a say on the state's new youth strategy

The Victorian Government is calling on teachers and students to help shape a new youth strategy for the state.

The strategy is an opportunity for young people and those who work with them to direct the government's work in the youth space, now and into the future.

As many voices as possible are being sought to create real, meaningful change, so that every young person has the opportunity and support they need to participate fully in our society and economy.

Public consultation is open until midnight on Monday 14 December.

How teachers and students can contribute

Teachers, and students aged 12 and over, can have a say on the new strategy by:

Teachers can also facilitate the HERO online creative activity with students. 

HERO online creative activity for students

This activity involves young people sharing a short story about their hero online, including their hero's superpower and how they would change Victoria for the better.

The aim is to create a picture of Victoria's ultimate team of heroes, ready to solve issues and help Victoria to be a place that reflects the vision, hopes and aspirations of its young people.

Victoria's hero team will be visualised through a series of illustrations produced by an emerging Victorian artist.

Each young storyteller who makes a contribution to HERO can opt to receive a copy of the illustrated hero team, as a memento of their role in shaping Victoria's youth strategy.

The new young strategy will be launched in mid to late 2021.
