Our Plan for building strong futures for all young South Australians
There are more than 266,000 young people aged 12-24 years living in South Australia. Our young people have always been active contributors to our state’s social, cultural and economic life, and will continue to be into the future. It is important that we hear their ideas, harness their talents and provide them with the opportunities and supports they need to build a strong future for themselves and for our state.
We want young people to be proud to live in a state that is at the centre of space innovation and a national leader on climate smart policies, such as our commitment to a zero emissions economy future.
We want young South Australians to be confident that we are making the best investments today for their futures tomorrow. That is why the voices of young people have been central to the development of the Strong Futures SA Youth Action Plan, and will remain central to the activities outlined in the Plan’s implementation.
The actions in this Plan are clear and practical. They build on the strong foundations of work that is currently being done, as well as identify new opportunities that respond directly to the priorities that young South Australians have expressed to us.
These flagship projects are exciting initiatives that will see new partnerships formed between government agencies and other stakeholders as together we deliver timely and tangible outcomes for young people within our state.
