This category lists websites dealing with Australian youth affairs, including organisations and government offices that work with and for young people, events for young people, and resources for young people who want to become more involved with their community. This category lists only websites with a direct connection to young Australians: organisations and events that may incidentally or tangentially involve young Australians in their planning or implementation are not listed (as they are listed elsewhere instead). Examples of types of websites that are not listed here include those of international programmes for young people worldwide, and domestic programmes that target young people only insofar as they are members of the general community. This category does not ordinarily list the personal websites of young Australians, unless they also fit into one of the categories above.
