Are you a young person in Year 10-12 and would like to contribute to a brighter future for other young people? Are you interested in sharing your thoughts and experiences to help Beacon Foundation better support young people like yourself? Do you also want to gain people skills and professional skills you can use in the future?

If you said yes to any of this, we want to hear from you! Apply today to join Beacon Foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).

We are recruiting 7 members for our YAC to ensure we continue doing our work with the voice of young people at the centre. With your help, we can ensure our programs and service delivery meet the need of young people and stay relevant.

The YAC members will sit on the committee for one year and convene 3-4 times a year (in person or via Zoom). Beacon will cover any reasonable travel costs to make sure you can attend. We will also cover the travel costs of your parent/guardian. All members will sit on the committee for 1 year.

Young people in year 10-12 from a range of diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Beacon YAC  is inclusive of all genders, identities, and cultures.

No resumes or cover letters are necessary for your application.  If you are under 18 you will need parental/guardian consent to participate.
