The participation by young people in Australian society is fundamental to our future as a nation. Working for and with young people is crucial to the nation’s economic and social wellbeing.
Defence is committed to providing a range of safe, challenging, high quality and contemporary youth engagement and development activities and programs.
Protecting children is everyone’s responsibility.
Sadly, this wasn’t the case for Dolly Everett, who was the victim of bullying and ended her own life at the young age of 14.
Play your part to make Defence a Youth Safe Organisation.
No young person who interacts with Defence needs to feel that way Dolly felt or take the action she took.
Defence wants all young people who participate in our activities to feel safe and be safe.
The Defence Youth Safety Framework provides the mechanisms for this to occur.
Please refer to the support services available for young people Under 18 within Defence Youth programs
