Tasmanian Youth Conference

The Tasmanian Youth Conference  

The Tasmanian Youth Conference (TYC) is a biennial event which celebrates and explores what it means to be a young person in Tasmania!  TYC is open to young Tasmanians aged between 12-25 years who are, or want to be, involved in their community. A concurrent program also caters to the needs of the wider youth sector.

TYC provides the opportunity for young people to get together with the wider youth sector and initiate projects, learn skills, hear from dynamic speakers, and engage with interactive workshops on a wide range of subjects.  It also provides an excellent chance to increase the social capacity and engagement of a broad range of young people. Youth sector workers and those who work in youth affairs will also have the opportunity to undertake some professional development and expand their knowledge on youth issues.
