YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL

YAC Bunbury‘s desire is to create one YAC for all youth that embraces indigenous, disabilities and multicultural representations, making a stronger YAC through diversity of its membership.

A single YAC will improve coordination and collaboration in creating events and community change. It will provide a single voice to be listened to by Council rather than disparate groupings of youth representation.

The new Bunbury YAC formed in 2017 will be more effective in getting things done for all youth in the Bunbury Geographe Region. YAC members desire to make YAC an all-inclusive group with a sense of responsibility and belonging. The main focus for the YAC over the next two years will be in line with The YAC Effect (YAC strategy Plan). 

YAC Vision

To develop and create an inclusive multicultural community which embraces youth and families to live and grow.

YAC Mission

Through listening and building relationships in the community and to lead and connect young people so they can be empowered to use their voice to contribute to the growth of the Bunbury Geographe Region.

The YAC Effect
