YAC members all represent different groups of young people aged between 12 - 25 from the Southern Fleurieu region. This may include a school, community group, youth group, church, cultural group or youth agency. YAC aims to have a diverse membership so that the views of as many different young people as possible are representative. YAC members meet every 3rd week on a Tuesday and meetings are held in Goolwa and Victor Harbor and also participate in the running and event management of several youth, community events and blue light discos throughout the year.

Being a representative means that you need to “keep in touch” with what the views, ideas and issues of concern for the young people you are representing. You can do this in a number of ways….such as Informal chats, Advertise in school newsletter, Speak to a class or at school assembly, Surveys and questionnaires, Form discussion groups, Suggestion box, Speak to youth workers, Keep an eye on the news - local, Sate wide, national and international (what’s happening??), Get out there and talking to people, Web site discussion groups, Forums and youth events, Small focus groups.

Being in YAC is a great way of participating in your community and having an input to your local Council; YAC is a fun and social group to be involved with and a great way to make friends.
