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.
Back in April, AYAC's Natalie Lammas was asked to be featured in a video by a startup online magazine called 'Flying the Coop'. The video interview is centred around youth government assistance programmes and the fact that some of Australia’s youth are living below the poverty line due to our outdated welfare system.
