Whitehorse Youth Representative Committee

The Whitehorse Youth Representative Committee (WYRC) is a group of 12 young volunteers aged 12-25 years that acts as a voice for young people, advocating on their behalf to Council and to the wider community on important youth issues.  

Committee members take part in a year-long program to develop leadership skills and attend training in the areas of consultation, public speaking, marketing / promotion, event management, advocacy and community participation. Members gain valuable experience and use their skills throughout the year to connect with young people, schools and youth organisations to implement events, projects and initiatives that benefit young people and address important youth issues.

Are you passionate about youth issues and making a positive impact on young people in the community? Then the WYRC may be for you!
