Victorian Youth Congress | Youth Central

The Victorian Youth Congress (VYC) is an advisory group of young people aged 12 - 25 who work with government to identify and advocate for issues that matter to young people.

The VYC consults regularly with the Office for Youth providing insight and advice to embed a youth perspective and voice in policies, programs and decisions that affect Victorian young people.

The 2022 cohort of the VYC is made up of 21 passionate and inspiring young people who reflect the diverse experiences and identities of their peers.
