Centre for Youth Policy and Education Practice
The Centre of Youth Policy and Education Practice (CYPEP) mission is to connect youth research to policy and practice. Young people are often denied a role in national debates about Australia's future. CYPEP seeks to change the conversation about young people by actively engaging them and the organisations seeking to support them. CYPEP works with policy-makers, educators and youth-focused organisations on research that addresses emerging needs, and that respects and includes young people.
The work of CYPEP, particularly its Australian Youth Barometer, featured in virtually every media outlet in the country in 2021, reaching millions of readers. This work has been positively received nationally and internationally. Locally, CYEPE has also begun providing advice to government and the not-for-profit sector seeking to improve the life outcomes of young people.
