Engaging Queensland's young people

A young person living in Queensland today should be able to look to the future with excitement and see limitless possibilities. Being young is about exploring opportunities that come with increased independence and having the benefit of choice.

The Queensland Youth Strategy: Building young Queenslanders for a global future creates opportunities for young people to participate in decision-making that will affect their lives now and in the future. It sets out this government's vision for young people to actively contribute to Queensland's economic, civic and cultural life.

Central to the strategy’s success is our ongoing commitment to continuous engagement with young people. As part of this commitment, we will ensure young people are given the opportunity to contribute to the development of relevant government policies, programs and services. This will enable young people to help shape Queensland’s future, and also encourage innovation and community ownership of these policies, programs and services.

We facilitate a range of programs and initiatives aimed at developing the skills and capabilities of our young people, preparing them for them for a prosperous and global future.
