Youth Justice Advocacy
Youth Justice Project
What is it?
The Youth Justice group, facilitated by Australian Red Cross, is discussing topics related to our youth justice system and other youth related policies and legislation. This includes looking at ways to improve the court and supervision systems, as well as detention and social inclusion approaches applied across the community. Issues for discussion are identified by the Commissioner and/or the participants themselves.
In addition to their advisory function, Youth Justice project participants will be supported as part of a leadership development program. This bespoke program will help develop the group’s capacity to advise appropriately by building their leadership skills working from a strengths-based approach. This involves looking at their values, their individual strengths and their communication skills.
