Shift This - Youth Action conference - Every second year, Youth Action hosts Shift This, a conference for young people in NSW, to help develop their skills to speak out and take action on what they see around them.

This year Shift This will feel like a start-up weekend: a hands-on, supportive environment where you will explore issues and develop solutions to problems you see in your community. Throughout the two days of Shift This you will:

  • Discover and learn about key issues affecting young people in NSW
  • Form teams to develop projects to address an issue in your community
  • Learn how to design and implement a community-based project that effects real change in your community
  • Pitch your project to a panel of experts
  • Receive support to launch your project after Shift This

Shift This isn’t a passive learning experience – everything about Shift This is about you being involved and trying things out yourself.

After you’ve attended Shift This 2014, you’ll have a ready-to-launch project, which can address real needs in your community. We’ll help connect you with people who can help launch your project. For more info or to register click here.

Need Help? NNIC is here for everyone in the community who needs us...including young people. Okay we know we are all pretty old compared to you, but we might still be useful.

Want to get Involved in the community? We have lots of stuff going on at NNIC and we are always looking for young folk to volunteer. We NEED you. We WANT you. So come on in! If we don't have anything which interests you, we can probably point you in the right direction.

Need to do a work placement or work experience? Again young people are always welcome at NNIC so contact Nat or Cat to find out more.
