So you want to be a young leader in the community and learn new skills?


Yarra Youth Ambassadors

Yarra Youth Ambassadors are a group of motivated young leaders, 12 to 25 years of age, who care about making a difference in their community.

As a Youth Ambassador, you will get to:

  • meet and work with other young people on projects related to issues that affect you and other young people
  • provide ideas and input into new programs and activities for young people in Yarra
  • get trained in leadership, facilitation, enterprise, communication and advocacy skills
  • set up new campaigns, enterprises or policy structures which address the issues you feel are important in the community
  • If you're passionate about positive social change and making a difference then we'd love to have you join the Youth Ambassadors
