A number of Experts Reference Groups (ERG) have been established by the NYC as time limited bodies to provide it with expert advice on systemic and policy issues pertaining to the economy, the labour market, youth employment, education, and transitional issues for young people in Australia and internationally. Some ERG’s have a focus around a particular cohort of young people.
Members of the Experts Reference Groups are leaders with knowledge, experience and expertise in various fields relevant to the scope and purposes of the National Youth Commission.
Experts Reference Group members are appointed as individual experts not representatives of organisations.
The Experts Reference Groups provide advice but are not constituted as decision-making bodies; that mandate rests with the NYC Commissioners.
