Established in 1993, the Youth Advisory Collective (YAC) is a volunteer group of young people aged 12 - 24 years who live, work or study in the City of Cockburn. The YAC help organise events including Battle of the Bands, FROSH Festival and the Youth ANZAC Parade & Service, and administer money for U-Fund applications. 

The Collective is now focused on youth-led, youth-driven projects which will give young people greater capacity to organise and lead community based projects for other young people. We build skills in team building, leadership and organising, and take part in advocacy. If that sounds like something you would be interested in we would love to hear from you.
