Koorie Youth Council

The Koorie Youth Council, formerly known as The Victorian Indigenous Youth Advisory Council (VIYAC) is a state-wide network of volunteer Indigenous young people between 12 and 25 years who provide a voice to government and community on issues of importance to them.

The Koorie Youth Council is an avenue for Indigenous young people to come together and voice their ideas, passions and interests, in a safe, structured and supportive environment. The Koorie Youth Council is committed to supporting and encouraging all who become involved to build their skills and capacity.

The Koorie Youth Council receives funding support from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria. It is a community-based volunteer program, which is not for profit.
