The Youth Network of Tasmania (YNOT) is the peak body for the non-government youth sector in Tasmania. YNOT has input into and responds to policy direction, advocates for the youth sector and lobbies for the needs and initiatives of young people.
Integral to the work of YNOT is the youth participation structure know as the Tasmanian Youth Forum (TYF). TYF is Tasmania’s peak youth consultative and participatory body. Its members are young people, 12 to 25 years of age who gather together to discuss issues that affect the youth of Tasmania.
YNOT and TYF are funded by the State Government’s Department of Premier and Cabinet, through the Communuty Development Division.
