Knox Youth Advisory Committee (YAC)

The Knox Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is Council’s formal advisory committee designed to assist Council with its community engagement processes and provide valuable information to support the decision making of Council. This committee brings young people aged 12 – 25, community representatives and Councillors together to have a say about local issues in the Knox municipality and supports Council’s commitment to engage with its community on issues that affect the lives and wellbeing of young people.

The purpose of the YAC is to:

  • Provide the opportunity for young people to give their ideas and opinions relating to the development of Council’s plans and policies;
  • Engage in discussion regarding issues that affect young people;
  • Participate in the consideration of strategic Council documents, plans and activities;
  • Provide input into Council’s processes relating to young people where requested i.e. provide feedback regarding projects to be considered by Council that have an impact on young people; and
  • Provide opportunities to develop young people’s leadership skills and experience.

What is the commitment?

  • Membership is for a 12 month period
  • Members are expected to attend 50% of monthly meetings
  • Members are encouraged to bring a guest to each meeting
