The ACT Election is on 15 October 2016. We are asking all political parties and candidates to commit to investing well to reduce the education attainment gap for students in the ACT.

Our ask is for matched investment in community services to better partner with schools and expand their role in supporting educational attainment of disadvantaged students. Click here to read our full election ask.

On 11 September 2016, ABC News Canberra reported on the launch of our election ask. The TV report includes interviews with Courtney, one of the Youth Coalition’s Youth Media Team members, and the YWCA Canberra Computer Clubhouse, as well as Susan Helyar, Director of ACTCOSS, and Emma Robertson, Director of the Youth Coalition.
