The Youth Commitment’s scope is to improve outcomes for young people:

The Youth Commitments understands the pivotal role and influence of “the family” on young people’s health, wellbeing and education outcomes. Our scope therefore sees young people within the context of their family life.


The Youth Commitments are composed of a leadership group and a community team.

The leadership group is a cross-sector group made up of managers or coordinators of key organisations including local schools. They are responsible for overseeing the effective coordination of the partnership as well as guiding the strategic direction of the Youth Commitment.

The community team is an open-membership group whose members directly engage in networking, consultation, delivery and evaluation of co-designed initiatives. Community Team members organise themselves into focus area action teams to improve specific community level outcomes.

Action teams implement work on three key focus areas:

  1. Youth employment
  2. Youth engagement in learning and transitions
  3. Youth safety, wellbeing and social inclusion


Responsibilities of the Youth Commitments include:
