Youth engagement projects

Youth Ambassador Pilot Project

This pilot project was run in two communities in north-east Victoria from January 2017 to March 2018. The pilot aimed to equip young people with the knowledge and confidence to become active bystanders in the prevention of men’s violence against women.

Participants in Benalla took part in a series of workshops, contributed to the organisation of their local community White Ribbon March and developed three bystander videos and a factsheet on technology facilitated abuse.

In collaboration with Gateway Healthy, a group of young men from Albury-Wodonga were also supported to take part in a series of workshops on domestic and family violence and respectful relationships. For their final project the group chose to write and produce a music video discouraging violence against women in the community.

Supported by Gandel Philanthropy.

Youth Innovation Project: The Key to End Violence

This two year project works with boys and young men in Inverell NSW to highlight the role they can play as allies to women and girls and as drivers of positive social change in their community. Along with knowledge, skill and confidence building activities, participants will be supported to explore topics such as masculinity, gender, violence and community values and use media to start a discussion with the wider community around violence against women.

For year one of the project, we are collaborating with Inverell Clontarf Academy to deliver a series of interactive workshops to Year 10 and 11 students. Participants will also have the opportunity to develop a media product that will be presented back to the community in various forums.

For year two of the project, we are inviting players and sports clubs from across Inverell Shire to come on board with the Youth Innovation Project and be part of a broader community effort to address the issue of men’s violence against women.
