Maribyrnong Youth Advisory Committee

About This Service

The Maribyrnong Youth Advisory Committee (MYAC) is a committee of 15 young people between the ages of 12-25 years olds who are passionate about being young leaders in the Maribyrnong community. MYAC members come from different backgrounds and experiences, from various local high schools, community and youth agencies, education, training, employment and sporting groups and its main role is to act as a consultative and communicative link between Maribyrnong City Council and young people.

MYAC advises Council on a range of issues and makes recommendations on issues that affect young people locally. The group acts as a central point for youth issues at a Council level and also hosts and supports projects such as the Maribyrnong Youth Forum and Human Rights Day Festival.

MYAC meets on the first Wednesday of every month  or sometimes more regularly if working on a special project. To date, the Maribyrnong Youth Advisory Committee has provided advice that has resulted in significant gains in making Council and the municipality of Maribyrnong  more youth friendly.
