|The Berry Street Childhood Institute believes that young people have a key role to play in leading change to ensure that more children have a good childhood in Australia. Our perspective is informed by our work with some of the most vulnerable young people in Victoria and is grounded in a commitment to encourage and support youth participation. |
We believe youth participation should be measured “...by the extent to which their involvement can drive and influence real change” Tom Woodroofe, in Walsh & Black (2011)
Berry Street was first established on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders, past and present, and to all the traditional custodians of land throughout Australia.
