The Australian Youth Affairs Coalition was formed in 2002, after the wind-up of the previous national youth affairs peak, the Australian Youth Policy and Action Coalition (AYPAC) a few years earlier. We are governed by a Board of Directors, and receive expert policy advice from our Policy Advisory Council (PAC). The Board and PAC include representatives from state and territory youth peaks, the youth sector and young people from across Australia.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures, and to the elders both past and present.
