PCYC NSW is committed to reconciliation and to listening and responding to the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth. Nations of Origin is our annual flagship youth sporting event which has been growing year on year for the last 5 years.
This year for the first time, PCYC NSW surveyed youth at Nations of Origin as part of our growing focus on evaluating the impact of our work with communities across the state. We wanted to find out how highly they rated the event, what reconciliation means to them and if they would recommend Nations to their friends and family. In line with PCYC NSW Mission and Vision of youth empowerment we supported two teams of young people to survey their peers using both paper- based and digital survey approaches. These young people did a sterling job and the results are summarised in the accompanying infographic.
