    Event description

    The problem of ‘youth homelessness’ remains a persistent and troubling issue, exacerbated by the Covid-19 Pandemic crisis. During 2020, the weaknesses of our systems, programs and policies for young people were exposed.  

    The 2021 National Youth Homelessness Conference is organised around a project to develop a National Strategy to End Youth Homelessness. 

    By attending the National Youth Homelessness Conference, you will: 

    • Engage with senior practitioners and policy makers on the emerging ideas in homelessness services
    • Deepen your own knowledge base on youth homelessness
    • Attend alongside young people with lived experience, CEOs, program managers, case workers and more - this conference is for all levels of experience and not exclusive to only a few
    • Foster networks and connections with people in all areas of youth homelessness including nonprofits, government, philanthropy, educators, academics and more
    • Contribute your own knowledge, ideas and experiences 
    • Actively participate in sessions - this is not just a talking conference and plenty more

    With all funds raised going towards the national strategy development project, attend NYHC2021 confidently knowing your ticket will have an impact on the future of youth homelessness in Australia.
