Young Change Agents facilitates youth codesign processes and workshops across Australia. These workshops allow us to work with young people and capture their perspective, insights and ideas on specific topics and challenges.
For Government, this has included co-design workshops for the Federal Government-funded Academy for Enterprising Girls which involved over 200 youth, educators and industry in 5 locations across Australia. We are now a major delivery partner of this initiative.
For schools, this is a great way to solve problems teachers or students are facing such as “how might we better connect young people and the community?”. In 2019, we worked with Queensland Department of Education to ask girls in the South East region, “how might we engage young women with STEM?”.
In 2019-20, Young Change Agents, in partnership with local Indigenous leader Nicole Brown, conducted a 9-month co-design process with Indigenous young Australians, identifying key challenges and opportunities for community-led entrepreneurial education in the NT.
Young Change Agents also conducts codesign with industry to help organisations gain insight into youth perspectives and better design for young people. In 2019-20 we ran codesign workshops with primary, high school and university students to feed into the design for the Metro Martin Place project.
