Australian Youth Forum Evaluation

The Australian Government is currently doing an evaluation of the Australian Youth Forum (AYF). The AYF is one of the key ways the Australian Government engages young people to participate in public discussions through online discussion boards and events, and the AYF wants to hear from you!

Recently AYAC heard from young people about the AYF to inform our own feedback to the final evaluation, and we are in the process of preparing our submission now.

The AYF's survey is still open, and we strongly encourage young people to have their say directly. You can complete the AYF survey here or it can also be found on the their website www.youth.gov.au/ayf
