Koorie Youth Participation Resource

Koorie Youth Council

Utilising an Aboriginal youth-centred approach, comprising workshops and on-the-ground research, this project has developed a powerful resource for stakeholders to use when engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.

The history of colonisation, intergenerational trauma left by past policies and ongoing racism, combined with the everyday realities in many Aboriginal communities, have created difficult lived experiences with often serious implications for our young people.

The KYC resource provides best practice guidelines to ensure genuine and meaningful engagement through connecting and understanding. Non-Aboriginal stakeholders can work together with Aboriginal people on initiatives that ensure young people are part of their own solutions and are able to thrive.
