The Youth for Change conference is proudly hosted by CREATE Foundation, the peak consumer body representing the voices of children and young people in out-of-home care. CREATE provides programs and services to create a better life for children and young people in care. The Youth for Change conference will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from the 2nd – 4th October 2015 and is open to all children and young people in care in Australia. The conference will also be open to and appealing for carers, government officials and those working in the sector.
The overall purpose of Youth for Change: creating a better future, is to provide an international forum for young people with a care experience to learn and grow, build self-confidence, and to connect with their peers and those working within the system. The collective aim is to enhance community awareness and to reduce the stigma associated with children and young people with a care experience and to provide them with an avenue to feel empowered, informed, and to have a say and be heard.
