The Youth Events Coordinator is an exciting new role developed in response to the growth of Minus events for LGBTQIA+ youth.

Starting in 1998, our events provide young people with exciting life-affirming experiences, designed to improve mental wellbeing by making new friends and social connections.

Now, we’re launching the National Digital Events Program!

To ensure Minus18 events reach LGBTQIA+ young people from across geographic regionals and all identities, you will maintain communication channels with young people and other community organisations across Australia. Through these channels, you’ll build relationships and brainstorm initiatives to reach and support more young people.
