The Youth Affairs Council of Victoria (YACVic) is the peak body and leading policy advocate on young people's issues in Victoria. YACVic’s vision is that young Victorians have their rights upheld and are valued as active participants in their communities.

YACVic is an independent, not-for-profit, member driven organisation that represents young people (aged 12-25 years) and the sector that works with them. We advocate on behalf of our members by making representations to government and in the media, convening meetings of our members and sharing information. YACVic is governed by a volunteer Board, up to half of whom are young people, and is run by a core secretariat. Our work is primarily funded by the Victorian Government Office for Youth. YACVic provides services, including YACVic Rural and the Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) and auspices and supports partner agencies, including the Koorie Youth Council (KYC) and the Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC).

YACVic promotes the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all children and young people, including those with a disability, those who are Aboriginal or those from refugee or migrant backgrounds.

The Participation & Development Coordinator (PDC) is a unique role in the organisation.  The PDC ensures YACVic’s commitment to youth participation, membership involvement and sector support is enacted throughout the organisation, the sector and the wider community.
