Abstract

Y-Change is a pilot initiative developed by the Berry Street Childhood Institute. It aims to provide opportunities for a range of young people who have experienced disadvantage to contribute as leaders, change agents and advisors on matters affecting young people experiencing disadvantage. Young people were recruited through Berry Street services and a network of three Referral Partner Organisations: Mirabel Foundation, Youth Support & Advocacy Service (YSAS), and the Broadmeadows Education First Youth Foyer.
