Our youth participation opportunities
Visual Arts Opportunity
Young Queenslanders aged 13–18 years sent us paintings, drawings, photographs and graphic artworks about their community, hopes and dreams and issues that are important to them.
We'll be announcing the winners soon!
Youth Advisory Council
The Youth Advisory Council champions the voices of children and young people by providing youth perspectives and strategic leadership to the QFCC. The Youth Advisory Council provides an important role in advising the Commissioners on what is important to young Queenslanders.
Some other ways we work hand in hand with children and young people include:
- events that are focused on children and young people
- group consultation about different projects
- partnering with other organisations that work with children and/or young people
- supporting young people to attend events where their voices need to be heard.
Youth Participation Strategy and Plan
Young people have told us they experience barriers to having their voices heard. That’s why we developed the Youth Participation Strategy and Plan.
The Youth Participation Strategy aims to make sure children and young people have meaningful opportunities to participate in and inform the design and delivery of our work.
It also identifies ways children and young people can help us determine whether the work we have done has been effective and beneficial.
Each year the QFCC develops a Youth Participation Plan to commit to actions in line with the Strategy.
Check out the strategies below to see how we connect, respect and celebrate the views of young people.
