Nominations open for new Youth Advisory Committee

Nominations are now open for the new Glen Eira Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).

The YAC will be one of Council’s formal advisory committees. Members will provide their feedback and advice in relation to Council plans and policies ensuring that a youth perspective is considered on issues that affect the lives and wellbeing of local young people.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said Council recognises and values the significant contribution young people make in their local communities and is committed to providing opportunities for young people to engage in civic participation.

“It’s important to hear the voices of a diverse range of young people in Glen Eira and I encourage all young people to apply, including culturally and linguistically diverse, LGBTIQA+, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and young people with disabilities,” she said.

Meetings will be conducted face-to-face in an accessible venue or, if required, online via Zoom. There will be up to a maximum of five meetings annually, with members expected to make a commitment to attend all formal meetings.

If you are a young person with a demonstrated interest in the community, aged 12 to 25 and live, work or study within Glen Eira, you are eligible to apply. Nominations close 5pm Friday 28 May.

To find out how you can self-nominate or for further information, contact Youth Services on 9524 3676 or email selms@gleneira.vic.gov.au
