In September 2016, the Australian Youth Advisory Network (AYAN) 2016 Boundless Summit saw 30 young members from Queensland, Victoria, the Northern Territory and New South Wales come together on the Gold Coast to participate in professional development, networking and consultation opportunities.

In ascertaining young members’ perceptions on terminology currently used to describe young people within St John Ambulance Australia, consultation participants were asked to consider:

  • What is the preferred term when referring to members between the age of 12 to 17 and 18-26 years?
  • What connotations does our current terminology hold?
  • Do young members hold a current preference regarding the terminology used in St John?


The results of this consultation can  be found in this report (Coming soon).
