Shaping the future

Who are YAC?

The Youth Advisory Council of the West Tamar is a coordinated group that represents local young people with a real and authentic voice, whilst influencing the future of the West Tamar.

Who can join?

Young people aged 12-25 are welcome to enquire about connecting with YAC West Tamar.

You don't need to be an existing student leader or have an established position within the community. If you have energy and commitment to your community or even have some ideas about how Council can make the West Tamar a better place for young people, we want to hear from you.

Young people's opinions are important for the development of our community.
