Youth Advisory Groups

The Office for Youth runs Youth Advisory Groups with young people aged 16 to 25. They work with the Australian Government on the development of policies or programs that matter to young people. Each group has a specific area of focus.

About

The Youth Advisory Groups each partner with a government agency and provide direct advice on their area of focus.
Group membership and topics are refreshed annually.
