Our members include young people, youth workers, service providers, youth programs, mutual support and self-help groups as well as other interested individuals. Membership is open to organisations and individuals who agree with the Youth Coalition’s objectives.

Opportunities are provided for members to share information, network, access resources, contribute to policy development, and participate in representing in the best interests of young people and youth service providers.
