This year, Youth Week in NSW is partnering with NSW Volunteering to overcome the barriers which make it difficult for young people to volunteer, and propose new strategies to make it easier to volunteer. As many young people know, experience as a volunteer has become an important pathway to employment.
The It Starts With Us! Forum is an opportunity for young people to network with a range of policy makers and service providers, and to participate in activities, discussions and workshops that build their knowledge, skills and confidence to meaningfully participate in their communities.
Date: Wednesday 6 April 2016
Time: 9:45am – 3:00pm
Venue: NSW Parliament House, 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney
NOMINATIONS CLOSE FRIDAY 18 MARCH 2016.
Places at the It Starts With Us! Forum are limited. Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be advised via email by Monday 21 March 2016.
The NSW Department of Family and Community Services will coordinate and meet the costs of travel arrangements for young people who live outside the greater Sydney metropolitan area.
