About Us

Youth Action is the peak organisation representing young people and youth services in NSW. Our work helps build the capacity of young people, youth workers and youth services, and we advocate to see positive change on issues affecting these groups.

Principles that underpin our work

  • We give a particular focus to regional young people, First Nations young people, those doing it tough, those with disability, LGBTIQA+ and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, including migrants and refugees.
  • We use a rights-based lens to focus on programs, policy and advocacy that achieve meaningful outcomes, embed strengths-based approaches and are informed by data and evidence.
  • We are an ally to the self-determination of First Nations communities, are led by the expertise of young people and the Sector and are a trust-worthy partner and collaborator.

Strategic Plan

Working towards our vision, the Youth Action 2021-2024 Strategic Plan outlines our strategy over the next three years. In building the Plan we heard from a diverse range of young people and the services that support them in NSW, together with our members, the Youth Action Board and Team.
