Advance - Guide for community organisations

Advance’s goal is to enable young people to participate and volunteer in community life. Advance is part of the Government’s commitment to valuing the contributions of young people, listening to their views and providing them with genuine opportunities for involvement in their communities.

Through Advance, young people identify issues of concern or interest in their communities, and work in partnership with suitable community organisations to develop and deliver a community-based project or series of activities. The project or activities must be of benefit to the broader community. Young people, the school coordinator and the community organisation negotiate the level of involvement.

This document outlines the background to the program, and the roles and responsibilities of partners.
