Youth Advisory Council
Young people can impact the youth agenda in your community and amplify ideas and concerns.



Young people want to be the drivers of youth-focused change and directly impact the youth agenda in their community

You can amplify the ideas and concerns of youth — your own and those of your friends and peers — by joining the Nambucca Valley Youth Advisory Council.

The establishment of a Youth Advisory Council (YAC) will be the first of its kind and be an extremely empowering experience.

Each month, 6 young people from the Valley, aged 16 to 24, will be invited to speak to the issues the council is currently addressing, or use that opportunity to put forward and talk to one of their own motions.

In addition to council meetings, the group will come together for both a collaborative and skill-building discussion with subject experts.

Subject experts schedule:

Wednesday 6 April – Caz Heise, Voices 4 Cowper

Wednesday 4 May – Kate Munro, CEO Youth Action

Wednesday 25 May– Eliza Zanuso and Dean Besley, Bellingen Youth Hub

Wednesday 24 August – Russell Ingram, Office for Regional Youth | Regional Youth Community Coordinator – Mid North Coast

Wednesday 2 November – TBC

* Subject experts and dates are subject to change.
