2023 Youth Summit

Our Youth Summit is a platform for students to voice their ideas around diversity, inclusion and community cohesion to politicians, leaders and the broader community. Since 2016, our Youth Summits have hosted hundreds of students from a diverse range of government and non-government schools.

In 2023, participating students will prepare a presentation around the theme of Diversity and Connection.

This year, our Youth Summit program is expanding! We are excited to be offering TWO Youth Summits, one in NSW and one in Victoria. For each Summit, we will offer placements to schools from metro and regional areas.

We are excited to be holding our first Youth Summit in Victoria in partnership with the Asia Education Foundation on Tuesday 18 July 2023.

Applications for Victoria’s inaugural Youth Summit are now open!
