Young Ambassadors can represent a State, Territory or region – they can also represent a cohort of young people. Youth Ambassadors consult directly with young people and ensure that their voices are resoundingly heard and represented in the work of the NYC.
Why become a Youth Ambassador for the NYC?
You’ll get skills and experience in grassroots work: our youth ambassadors are able to get involved with the many different parts of the NYC, including public hearings, events, workshops, operations and more. Ambassadors get to develop their skills in real and practical ways while being a part of a community movement.
You’ll make friends and networks: The NYC is built on a network of over 130 organisations which are supporting this work. Not only will you gain exposure to different spaces and places, but you’ll meet plenty of people who care about youth development and the future of work.
You’ll create impact on the world we live in: By becoming a youth ambassador with the NYC, you’ll be part of something bigger – a collective of individuals and organisations who aren’t going to wait around for the government to make the right decisions about these issues. You’ll be working towards impacting the lives and outcomes of young people across the whole country.
