As a CCYP Ambassador you can talk directly to Leanne, the Commissioner about what is important to you and other children and young people in Tasmania. Leanne is your commissioner so it’s really important that she hears what you have to say. You will have the opportunity to come together to discuss key issues and influence decision-makers.
Children’s rights? The environment? Justice? Jobs? Health services? How important are these topics and what do they mean to young people? What does everyone else need to know?
CCYP Ambassadors regularly meet with Leanne to:
- share opinions and ideas about what’s important – this helps the Commissioner to 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
- participate in the development and running of special projects or events to help advocate for Tasmanian children and young people.
