Youth Advisory Committee
Monthly on Thursdays
Platform 81 (81 Albert Street, Mordialloc 3195)
The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) has been established to provide an opportunity for young people to be involved in formulating future directions of Council for Kingston’s young people and to provide advice to 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.
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.
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.
