YANQ's work in re-engaging young people in education and training has been ongoing since 2003. 2012 marks the commencement of a three year research project specifically aimed at producing a best practice framework drawn from case studies of alternative re-engagement sites in Queensland.
To map re-engagement services available to young Queenslanders – i.e. services that support young people to re-engage with meaningful learning of some form.
Encourage a deeper understanding within the youth sector, governments and the community about disengagement and the types of re-engagement services that can work in different communities.
Develop, articulate and publish models of successful re-engagement services.

Resource for Youth Workers/Educators
Building Young People’s Voices is an initiative of Youth Affairs Network of Queensland (YANQ). The project has received funding support from Dusseldorp Forum. The project documented the voices of young people and their perspective on best practice in provision of alternative/flexible education. These six videos are developed to provide Youth Workers and Educators with a sample of what young people themselves believe to be good practice in a flexible education setting.
Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
