Watch Benson Saulo's journey to the UN!

Since this page was published the Department of Education and the Department of Employment have been created out of the former Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR).

AYAC was pleased to be able to provide support to the 2011 United Nations Youth Representative, Benson Saulo. The project is funded under the Australian Youth Forum Initiative on behalf of the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Since May 5 2011 Benson has traveled throughout Australia, Zurich, Switzerland and experienced a 3 month stay in New York City during the 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Throughout his travels Benson attended and hosted various youth forums to gain a deeper understanding on the issues affecting youth today.


Australia's peak community sector and youth affairs bodies have welcomed a joint bipartisan parliamentary committee finding that two of the Government's proposed changes to youth payments are incompatible with Australia's human rights obligations.
