The Queensland Youth Strategy reflects the voices of more than 1200 young Queenslanders. Read how young people contributed ideas through statewide forums, pop-up booths at Youth Week events, and online surveys.

In March and April of 2016 we asked Police-Citizens Youth Clubs (PCYC) to consult with young people Queenslanders from a broad range of backgrounds to help shape the Queensland Youth Strategy.

Young people considered the kind of state they aspired to create and from their contributions the four building blocks of the strategy were identified.
