YACWA Survey – Youth Consultants Scoping Project

YACWA is currently undertaking a Youth Consultants Scoping Project. The aim of this project is to explore if there is need for a Youth Consultants Service and to determine the current and projected market for such a service.

We believe that young people and youth engagement should be front and centre of the design, procurement, delivery and evaluation of all services and facilities for young people. In the proposed Youth Consultants Service, YACWA would recruit and train young people to be youth consultants. These young people could then be engaged by local and state government entities, corporate and private enterprise and the not for profit sector in a consultative role to provide youth perspectives, insights and skills in a variety of ways. This may include (but is not limited to) policy, strategy, program, project, service or facility design, development, design or evaluation.

We perceive there is a current gap in WA in this space, but want to gather feedback from a wide variety of stakeholders from corporate, government and the not-for-profit sectors to explore this in further detail.

The survey should take approximately five minutes and to say thank you for completing the survey, you’ll go in the draw to win a $100 Coles/Myer voucher.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Lenni Duffield at lenni@yacwa.org.au

Thank you for filling out this survey – your feedback will be invaluable in shaping future direction of this project!

Meet the team

Vanessa Vlajkovic

Hi! My name is Nessa and I’m 20 years old. I’m studying Journalism at Edith Cowan University, with a Public Relations minor. I am an avid reader, writer, traveller and cheerleader. I’m also a passionate advocate for the deafblind community, and for other types of disability. I’ve been on the committee of the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) at YACWA for a few months, and through them have developed a desire to become a YEP volunteer, as I want to expand my horizons.
