National Youth Affairs Research Scheme

The National Youth Affairs Research Scheme was a cooperative funding program between the Australian Government and state and territory governments which ended in 2016.

It funded nationally based research into factors affecting young people. The research helped to develop and implement government policies and programs affecting young people.

The Education Council’s Youth Affairs Working Group chose the topics for research.

The Resources page has all National Youth Affairs Research Scheme research reports available.
