You Will Find is based on one idea:
If you listened to young people, what would you find?
If you read the opinions of youths, if you listened to their ideas and dreams, and if you let them be heard – what would you truly find out about young people?
Our website is written by young people, for all people.
We publish a diverse range of opinions that young people feel incredibly passionate about.
Whether it be legislative reform for domestic violence, stigma pertaining to mental health, or the inclusion of regional Australians, we want to talk about it.
We are fundamentally committed to raising the voice of youths and providing them a platform to be heard (and read) by all.
It’s important to understand when reading our website: we are not one opinion. Youths have a range of opinions and occasionally, they conflict with one another. The only way change is created is through difference of opinion, or approaches, so we can continue moving forward.
At times, our website may publish opinions that are not representative of the Editors, however, that reinforces our commitment to ensure all voices are read and not filtered out.
Our core values
Whilst You Will Find is deeply committed to presenting the voice of youths, we have a few core values that our website is founded upon:
How are we involved with the YMCA Queensland Youth Parliament?
