On Tuesday May 3 2016, the Federal Government announced its proposed budget. YACWA has conducted a thorough analysis of the available information, and extracted the key commitments and measures that we believe will have a direct impact on young people and the workforce supporting them in Western Australia.
The Youth in Community Services project aims to discover what support the community services sector needs to better engage young people in the design, procurement, delivery and evaluation of community services.
The WA Youth Awards were established in 1999 to recognise West Australians aged 12 to 25 years for their contributions to the community, as well as outstanding youth groups and organisations that serve and support the State’s young people.
Seven young Western Australians aged between 18 and 24 years have now been selected and have the opportunity to participate in an exchange program between Hong Kong and Western Australia in October 2016 and February 2017.
