Who should join the YRG?

Anyone between 12 and 25 years old (inclusive) can apply to join the YRG - you don’t need to be a super-brain* or have any previous experience, but you do need to be:

  • passionate about young people’s rights
  • a current YACVic member (if you are not a current member you can become a member for just $3), and
  • able to attend a four hour meeting on one Saturday each month and able to commit to roughly the same amount of work between meetings.

We strongly encourage young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and from rural and regional Victoria to apply.

* super-brains are still welcome too!
