The New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council’s (NSWALC) inaugural Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) has come to the end of its two-year-term, and applications are now open for the 2021 YAC.
NSWALC is currently seeking applications from young Aboriginal people between the ages of 18 and 25, with passion for advocating on behalf of others, and who want to be a part of the Land Rights movement in NSW.
This is a great opportunity for young Aboriginal people to develop their leadership skills and be heard on a range of topics important to them.
The YAC is made up of nine members from each of the nine NSWALC Regions. It provides advice and recommendations to NSWALC on issues impacting young Aboriginal people, as well as developing youth-led, community-based strategies to respond to those issues.
In return, NSWALC will provide the YAC members with career advancement training and leadership development opportunities.
The inaugural YAC:
YAC member Elijah Ingram delivered a powerful intervention speech to EMRIP on the forced removal of Indigenous Peoples from traditional lands.
You’ll find an information pack with more information below, please share with young people in your community.
Applications for the 2021 YAC close 5pm Friday 10th September 2021.
If you have any questions or comments regarding your application or the NSWALC Youth Advisory Committee itself, please contact the Strategy and Policy Unit via firstname.lastname@example.org or call (02) 9689 4444.
