Global Youth Advocacy Forums


Global Youth Advocacy Forums-Banner





Global Youth Advocacy Forums (GYAFs) consists of four one-day online youth leadership forums for Year 9 students and have been developed in response to the cancelation of the Victorian Young Leaders Program in 2020. GYAFs have been designed and will be delivered by Asia Education Foundation (AEF), in partnership with High Resolves and under guidance by Emeritus Professor Fazal Rizvi (The University of Melbourne: Melbourne Graduate School of Education) in collaboration with the Department of Education and Training.
