Advocate exists to promote direct dialogue between young people aged 18-30 and their local politician over a year period. The opportunity is available every 6 months, which ensures that more young people are able to participate.


Advocate directly counters the argument that young people are disengaged. The quarterly meetings provide young people with an opportunity to engage with and learn more about the role of politicians. Participating politicians are able to directly engage with the opinions of young people in their community on relevant issues.

Issues Focused

Advocate operates to discuss issues relevant to young people in each electorate. It currently operates in the ACT, with plans to expand to other states and territories.
