The City of Bayswater delivers a range of community initiatives which encourage community engagement and participation for young people.
Youth Advisory Council
The City of Bayswater Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a group of local young people who meet throughout the year to discuss issues in the area and plan youth events. YAC is about ACTION, VOICE and COMMUNITY. Now is a good time for young people to join the City of Bayswater's Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) as we are looking for new members with fresh ideas. This is an opportunity for local young people to gain some great experience in coordinating and programming events and also meet other like-minded young people who are living, working or studying within the City of Bayswater.
If you are aged between 12 -25, live, work or attend school in the City of Bayswater and are interested in the YAC (or just want to share your ideas for youth programs and events in the area), please contact 9272 0658 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
