Make a Written Submission

 

Written submissions can be made by any individual or organisation on any issues relating to the NYC’s terms of reference.

 

There is no word limit on a written submission but we suggest that you keep it concise and to the point.

 

Some people or organisations may request anonymity or confidentiality. If someone or an organisation requests anonymity, all identifying details will be removed. If someone or an organisation request confidentiality, the NYC will keep the submission (or relevant parts of it) confidential and it/those parts will not be published, nor will they be quoted by the National Youth Commission in its report.

 

The National Youth Commission reserves the right not to publish any submission if it considers it inappropriate to do so.

 

By publishing written submissions on its website, the National Youth Commission will express no opinion as to the content or accuracy of any of the submissions or other materials to which the submissions may refer.

 

The deadline for written and online submissions is the 30th of November 2019.

Become a Partner Organisation

 

Already there are over 130 organisations supporting the NYC either financially or in-kind or both. If your organisation would like to partner with and/or support the NYC contact us on info@nycinquiry.org.au

Become a Youth Ambassador

 

Young Ambassadors can represent a State, Territory or region – they can also represent a cohort of young people. Youth Ambassadors consult directly with young people and ensure that their voices are resoundingly heard and represented in the work of the NYC.

 

Why become a Youth Ambassador for the NYC?

 

You’ll get skills and experience in grassroots work: our youth ambassadors are able to get involved with the many different parts of the NYC, including public hearings, events, workshops, operations and more. Ambassadors get to develop their skills in real and practical ways while being a part of a community movement.

 

You’ll make friends and networks: The NYC is built on a network of over 130 organisations which are supporting this work. Not only will you gain exposure to different spaces and places, but you’ll meet plenty of people who care about youth development and the future of work.

 

You’ll create impact on the world we live in: By becoming a youth ambassador with the NYC, you’ll be part of something bigger – a collective of individuals and organisations who aren’t going to wait around for the government to make the right decisions about these issues. You’ll be working towards impacting the lives and outcomes of young people across the whole country.
