Introduction

Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic) invites you to participate in an online survey of people who work with young people in Victoria, who we have termed ‘youth specialists’ for the purposes of this survey. Please note that this survey only focuses on paid positions. 

The aim of this survey is to better understand Victoria’s youth sector, and in particular the roles and experiences of people who work with young people. The questions cover topics like lived experience, qualifications, type of work you are doing with young people, how you identify professionally, your views on ongoing professional development, and barriers and opportunities to your work.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and we really appreciate you taking the time, and encouraging your colleagues and peers to also complete the survey.  You will be helping to increase the understanding of the valuable role you and so many other workers play in young people’s lives, and the need and opportunities related to investing more extensively in youth programs and services in Victoria.

The survey is completely confidential. Results will be analysed by YACVic.
