What is the CCYP Ambassador Program?

The CCYP Ambassador Program is an opportunity for children and young people to have their voices heard on how things could be improved for children and young people in Tasmania.

Ambassadors will help the Commissioner understand what is important for children and young people and will be provided with opportunities to come together to discuss key issues and influence decision-makers.

What will CCYP Ambassadors do?

Ambassadors will have the opportunity to meet with the Commissioner to:

  • Share their opinions and ideas about what is important to them to help the Commissioner be a strong advocate for Tasmanian children and young people.
  • Learn about and promote the rights that children and young people have under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
  • Complete special projects. These projects will be developed through conversations with CCYP Ambassadors and will inform the Commissioner’s work on behalf of children and young people in Tasmania.
