In the September 2004 issue:

What young people? ? the political invisibility of youth

Youth appear to have 'fallen off the radar' in social policy debate. With an election imminent, what does this mean for the future of young people and youth work in Australia?

Three papers in this issue focus on interactions between youth and those who work with them, and between youth and governments, and society more generally. The topic of youth work will again be visited in the December issue of YSA. Other challenging topics in the current issue are: violent teenage deaths, public space and rights, and teens in cyberspace.

In the June 2004 issue:
