The Northern Beaches Council Youth Advisory Group provides a youth led way for young people to shape the future of the Northern Beaches including contributing to the delivery of Council’s Youth Voice Action Plan 2023-2028. It is a group of young people aged 12 - 24 that represent the voices of youth in the Northern Beaches Local Government Area and improve the participation of young people in local government planning and processes.

The group works with Council staff and local organisations to identify the needs and aspirations of young people across the Northern Beaches, and work on several projects to address them.

Commitment to the program includes monthly meetings with additional training and volunteering opportunities available. As well as gaining valuable life and employment skills, participants also have the chance to make new friends.

Applications for the Northern Beaches Youth Advisory Group are now closed for this cohort, however if you have a keen interest in getting involved there are some opportunities for a mid-year intake. Email us at with more information about yourself and your interest in the YAG.
