YAPA is now Youth Action

The Youth Action & Policy Association, your peak body representing your interests as a young person or youth worker in NSW, has changed the name by which it is commonly known.

We're going from YAPA to Youth Action. We've also changed our logo!

We decided on Youth Action to emphasise that we take action on issues that matter to you. Youth Action is also easier to remember - when we introduce ourselves to people who haven't heard of us yet, Youth Action will tell them straight away what we're about.

Will anything else change? No. Youth Action will continue offering the same great support to our members, and we will continue advocating on issues that matter to you. The full, registered, name of the organisation - Youth Action & Policy Association NSW - has not changed - we've simply refreshed our commonly used name and our logo to better represent the work we do to ensure that every NSW young person is supported, engaged and valued.

What about the website? We also have a dynamic new website to go with the name change. For a little while, we will maintain both sites. So what you are looking for should be on this site, but over time more and more will be on the new site too. Check it out at www.youthaction.org.au. 15/3/13
