Communities, Sport and Recreation supports the Tasmanian Youth Forum (TYF) through a Grant Deed with the Youth Network of Tasmania (YNOT).
TYF is the peak youth consultation body for young people in Tasmania. TYF is open to all young Tasmanians between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are interested in having their say on the issues that matter to them. Some of the opportunities that TYF provides includes:
One of the main ways that young people can be involved in TYF is through the TYF Statewide Forums.
TYF convenes two topic-based forums per year that provide young Tasmanians with the chance to talk about the issues they are passionate about with experts and their peers, as well as plan strategies to make change in their own communities.
The forum topics are chosen by TYF members. Previous topics have included:
After the forum, a communique is written by participants and presented to politicians, government representatives and important groups. Communiques from previous forums are available below.
The TYF Forum reports may also be viewed on the YNOT website.
