In October 2018, South Australia’s Commissioner for Children and Young
People Helen Connolly, in collaboration with Reconciliation SA and Tauondi
Aboriginal College, initiated an Aboriginal Youth Engagement project to explore the
feasibility of establishing an Aboriginal Youth Council (AYC) in South Australia.
The findings have led to a recommendation that an inaugural Aboriginal Youth Summit be held in the foreseeable future, to explore Aboriginal Youth Engagement further.
This reports captures the engagement process that led to this recommendation, and invites others who may be interested to support this idea to get in touch.
