We are pleased to announce that due to the generous support of Friends of The Good Childhood Conference, we are now able to offer youth scholarship places to The Good Childhood Conference!
The Berry Street Childhood Institute, along with many of the conference presenters and organisations working with children and young people in Australia, want to have a national conversation about what sustains a good childhood in the 21st Century.
We believe this conversation needs to include the unique perspective of young people who are currently growing up in the 21st Century. That’s why we ask that you share this opportunity with your students, clients, colleagues, friends and family.
Just having young people in the room changes the conversation. It reminds us that young people are not an analogous group of individuals that all do, think and experience the same things. It reminds us that young people have valuable insights into childhood too.
In general, we are offering scholarship places to young people aged between 16 and 21 years, however, we will receive applications from interested parties outside of this age range.
Accessing the youth scholarship places is easy
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details.*
- Name of applicant,
