The new Strategic Plan for YACVic represents the significant shift forward for the organisation as a peak body and leading advocate on young people’s issues in Victoria. Growth in the funding for both our core and partner agencies has brought about exciting opportunities, partnerships and active reach and presence across Victoria.
This is important both for our young people and organisations we represent and work with. YACVic is in a strong place to develop, strengthen and grow its work over the coming years.
Our Strategic Plan is the culmination of multiple consultations, sector reference group meetings, surveying young people and members, as well as liaising and discussing key issues and opportunities with State Government departments. The Board and team at YACVic, under the direction and guidance of the CEO, developed this plan as the roadmap to take the organisation into 2020 – leading practice and reforming our business to be current, relevant and future-focused.
We believe we have the leadership and team at YACVic to deliver on the following three strategic goals over the coming years: 1. Lead a strong, professional and connected youth sector; 2. Lead youth participation and engage well with our members; 3. Be the key source of knowledge and expertise on youth issues. These goals represent what we are, what we do and where we know we need to be in the future as a peak body. Our goals are linked to all the work we do with you, our partners, members, supporters and all young people, and we look forward to reporting regularly to you through our annual reports and our multiple communication platforms on how we are progressing.
Thank you to all the members, young people, partners and the Board and team at YACVic for their work developing this well-informed and inspired Strategic Plan. Together we can now make this happen.
