Youth Advisory Group (YAG)

CMY is dedicated to ensuring that the work we do is youth influenced, recognising young people as experts. After all, no one knows more about young people than…well, young people! 


What is the Youth Advisory Group (YAG)?

The YAG is a diverse group of up to 15 young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds from all over Melbourne. The group of enthusiastic and motivated members not only advise us, but also represent other young people. CMY's YAG ensures our work continually reflects and addresses young people’s issues to help us further support and empower them.


What do YAG members do?

In your role as Youth Advisor, you will have the opportunity to identify and discuss key issues affecting refugee and migrant young people, and contribute ideas for youth programs. YAG members may also get to work alongside CMY staff to plan key events, speak at or attend CMY functions and undertake training sessions. Being part of the YAG is a great opportunity for professional development and expanding your networks, while having some fun along the way!


Applications to join our YAG in 2017 have closed.
