Youth Field Xpress is a free monthly news briefing for youth researchers, youth workers, policymakers and anyone with an interest in youth issues. It contains news of research projects, reports, programs, projects and events that are relevant to the Australian youth sector and supporting services.
Face the Facts analyses important issues facing young Australians and the youth sector. Each issue includes:
Briefings – an in-depth report that reveals the complex factors at play and presents a ‘lay of the land’ view of the key issues involved. We include the major players, relevant policy implications and indications of where this issue may go in the future.
Snapshots – a short, sharp overview of the issue’s major themes and critical points, combined with informative graphics and statistics.
Case studies - insightful reports on programs or services working in the Face the Fact topic area. These provide background information, analysis of what worked, and reflections on successes and areas for improvement.
Podcasts and webinars - interviews and discussions with experienced practitioners, recognised researchers, and young people provide the personal insights that are vital to round out understanding and knowledge of an issue.
Each day, we relay current news about young Australians and the issues affecting them. We bring recent research, statistics, evaluations and emerging practices to the attention of the youth sector.
The Resource centre is the main repository of information on young Australians, including research, briefings, reports, statistics, case studies, programs, contacts, books and other publications…anything about young people and the organisations and individuals working with them.
ACYS uses social media networks to stay in touch with the Australian youth sector:

ACYS is here to help those looking for authoritative information on young Australians.
In some cases, there is so much information it can be difficult to sift through it all to find reliable, useful material. And at other times, information sources can be elusive or hidden to the average information hunter.
That’s where ACYS can help.
We know where to look for the materials you need and can put you in touch with the organisations you need to talk to.
Whether you need background details on a youth issue, specific statistics and data related to a current issue, or the latest research, we know where to source the best information.
ACYS has a long history of publishing for the Australian youth sector.
A list of current books in print is available, along with details about purchasing.
