Youth Advisory Committee
Monthly on Thursdays
Join the City of Kingston Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) and be involved in formulating future directions of Council for Kingston’s young people.
What is the YAC?
The YAC has been established to provide advice to the City of Kingston in relation to broad-based youth related issues within the community. The YAC is an advisory committee of Council with a Councillor or Councillors nominated on an annual basis.
The YAC provides an important forum for identifying municipal-wide issues and opportunities and advising Council about effective policy and service provision for young people within the City of Kingston.
Why join the Youth Advisory Committee?
The YAC provides opportunities for young people to develop leadership skills and be part of the decision making process. Further, the committee will provide the opportunities for young people to gain experience and knowledge of local government and the youth service system available to young people in the local and surrounding suburbs.
The committee aims to focus on issues and opportunities that are relevant across the entire municipality. The committee should provide specialist advice to Council as an input into decisions that impact municipal-wide Council policy.
Who can join?
If you would like to join the YAC you must be aged 12-25 and live, work or study in the City of Kingston.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to provide advice to Council, read the Terms of Reference – Youth Advisory Committee – May 2018 and membership criteria.
