National Youth Homelessness Conference

15-16 June, 2021

Shape the future for young people in Australia, and join the 2021 national virtual conference to end youth homelessness.

Inquiry into Youth Employment and Transitions

We’re currently running an independent, non-partisan community inquiry into the challenges faced by young people preparing for and seeking work now and into the future. It draws together the expertise and lived experience of diverse young people across the country, along with ideas from experts and the broader public, to create solutions to overcome these challenges.

Youthworx Media Social Enterprise

Youthworx is our youth media social enterprise that trains and employs young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in creative and commercial media production. 

A Way Home Australia

A Way Home Australia is a national campaign, which emanated from the National Youth Homelessness Conference held in March 2019 in Melbourne, Australia. It is based on the NYHC Communique, which unanimously endorsed at the conference, which seeks support of a number of fundamental reforms in the way in which we focus our national efforts to prevent and end youth homelessness.

Youth Futures Summit

The Youth Futures Summit (YFS) is an annual event that brings together thousands of diverse people across multiple sectors and communities to re-imagine issues young people are facing in Australia.


Youth Development Australia Ltd (YDA) is public benevolent institution created by a group of leading thinkers and practitioners in the youth field as a platform for change for young people especially those most disadvantaged by family or community circumstances.

The three core activities of YDA are:

Create and trial innovative and pioneering projects for young people.

Inform policy debate though think-tanks, conferences, and NYCA Inquiries on youth issues of national significance.

Provide opportunities for young people to develop creative ideas and achieve their full potential.
