Who are we?

The National Youth Commission (NYC) into Youth Employment and Transitions seeks to bring together the expertise, ideas and experience of young people and the whole of the Australian community to build a reform agenda for education, and the preparation and support of young people for work now and into the future.

 

The NYC is a co-designed process in which young people and the broader community can bring forward detailed ideas and solutions to challenging national issues.

 

It’s a platform through which your ideas and solutions can be heard and acted upon.
