The City of Vincent is excited to be releasing its first Youth Action Plan (YAP) for public comment. The YAP will guide the services and support offered to our young people over the next two years.

So far.....

Between October 2019 and April 2020, we talked to more than 400 youth, parents and service providers from across Vincent about the things that matter most to them. Through conversations, surveys, focus groups and more, the community have helped us develop a Youth Action Plan that reflects the diversity of our young people and their thoughts on youth priorities, issues and opportunities.

The YAP will help us deliver meaningful and relevant services for young people and ensure the youth voice is considered in decision making and future planning.

The Draft Plan

The draft Youth Action Plan centers around four key themes:

  • Support and Opportunity;
  • Community and Participation;
  • Wellbeing and Resilience; and
  • Organisational Capacity.

It also includes a five year vision to support, connect and empower our youth, and is underpinned by the City's Strategic Community Plan 2018 -2028.

The themes reflect the needs, priorities and ambitions raised by youth and the community during the City’s community consultation.

Mental health, the environment, employment and education were the top three issues raised by Vincent’s youth. Young people also spoke about the importance of feeling connected, their desire to contribute and feel a sense of belonging and the activities they hoped to take part in.

The plan includes key deliverables for the City – from providing safe, youth-friendly spaces to partnering with service providers to support mental health and creating leadership opportunities.
