The Youth Coalition's Members and Stakeholders Survey is now open. This survey is for members and other stakeholders who are involved in the activities of the Youth Coalition of the ACT.
As a membership-driven organisation, feedback from members and stakeholders is crucial. It will assist us in identifying where we are doing well, where we need to improve, and strategic directions for the future. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and is anonymous. You will not be required to identify or provide details about your service.
The Youth Coalition Annual General Meeting will be held on 17 October 2013 following the Youth Coalition Monthly Forum.
The Youth Coalition invites you to join us on a Child, Youth and Family Services Program (CYFSP) Induction Bus Tour. The CYFSP Induction Bus Tour will visit services within the CYFSP Service Delivery Framework, including those providing the CYFSP Gateway, Network Coordination, Case Management, Youth Engagement, Group Programs, Therapeutic Services, Specialist Services and Peak Bodies.
