Onkaparinga Youth Committee (OYC)
The OYC is an active group of young people aged 12-25 years. They meet regularly to advocate for young people and drive change in our community. The OYC listens to other young people within our region, and represents their views to the Mayor, Elected Members and other interested groups.
The City of Onkaparinga provides support and development to OYC members including access to training, on-going mentoring and professional development opportunities.
OYC membership aims to reflect the diversity of young people in the region. This includes consideration of gender balance and geographical location. In addition, the OYC aims to support the representation of indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse youth; young people with disability and LGBTIQ young people.
Members are appointed for a three year term and are required to attend monthly meetings.
