Announcing the Youth Worker Practice Network

The Youth Coalition is committed to supporting the development and practice of youth workers across the ACT. We've launched the Youth Worker Practice Network to offer a range of professional development opportunities such as active learning and shared case studies sessions, with the aim of facilitating the development of a community of practice for frontline workers supporting young people.

We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and continuing custodians of the lands of the ACT and we pay our respects to the Elders, their families and ancestors.

We acknowledge that the effects of the forced removal of Indigenous children from their families as well as past racist policies and actions continues today.

We acknowledge that Indigenous people hold distinctive rights as the original peoples of modern day Australia, including the right to a distinct status and culture, self-determination and land.

We celebrate Ngunnawal culture and the invaluable contribution to the community.
