The Tasmania Youth Forum TYF Learning and Education Statewide Youth Forum is an opportunity for young people aged 12 to 25 in Tasmania to discuss contribute ideas and solutions about all levels and types of education, and different ways of learning, as well as the opportunity to learn about different training and education pathways.

The Forum will be on Wednesday 4 November from 10:00am to 3:15 pm at the Door of Hope, Launceston. This is a free event with lunch provided and some free transport options starting from Burnie and Hobart to help support participants to get to and from the event.

The Forum will involve a range of activities and discussion groups and will focus on giving young people the opportunity to contribute their ideas and solutions to the barriers to education and learning that young people. The Forum will also give young people some ideas for planning their own learning pathways and the different types of study and training they can undertake. Information about services that are available for young people will also be included in the forum. The discussions and ideas from the forum will help to inform key decision makers and policy in Tasmania, as well as inform the future work of YNOT.

Registrations are essential and can be done online at or by contacting Tegan.
