Youth engagement

As a community, we want every young person to reach their potential. We know that a positive experience in the education system from early childhood to young adulthood is associated with positive outcomes in almost every facet of life. Understanding the complexities facing young people, and giving them the right conditions in which to flourish, forms the foundation of our commitment to making sure every child succeeds.

Youth engagement project

As part of our commitment, the Youth engagement project is implementing a number of initiatives to maximise the engagement and re-engagement of young people in Queensland.

Watch this animation for a quick overview of the project.

Youth engagement alliance

We are also collaborating with other agencies and organisations to ensure every young person receives the support they need to engage or re-engage with education, training or employment.

The youth engagement alliance brings together key government agencies and education partners to co-design innovative and holistic responses to support vulnerable young Queenslanders to succeed.
