Empower Youth Summit, 23-24 February 2019, Broken Bay Sport & Rec
Our Empower Youth Summit will create a space for youth-led discussions of key issues and solutions.
Youth empowerment is our key priority for Barang Regional Alliance: Our region boasts one of the fastest growing Aboriginal populations in Australia. Between 2006 and 2011, the Aboriginal population grew by 56%, with a further 13% increase in 2016. Today, 55% of Aboriginal people in the Central Coast are under 24 years, with a median age of 21, while the comparative median age for non-Indigenous people is 42. This means Aboriginal youth are the next generation of leaders facing unique challenges and opportunities
