The goal of the YDAS Young Leaders Program (YLP) is for disabled young people to be in influential leadership roles in a diverse range of organisations and communities.
YLP is a 4-workshop series for young Victorians who identify as having a disability. This can include having a health condition or chronic illness, being neurodiverse or autistic, Deaf, deaf or hard of hearing, blind or vision impaired, or having lived experience of mental health issues.
The half-day YLP workshops bring together groups of young people to grow their skills, knowledge, confidence and motivation to become better leaders. Participants build their knowledge of who they are, their confidence in teamwork and communication, and their advocacy and goal setting skills.
Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic) is the peak body and leading policy advocate on young people’s issues in Victoria. YACVic’s vision is that the rights of young people in Victoria are respected, and they are active, visible and valued in their communities. YACVic is an independent, for-purpose, member-driven organisation that represents young people (aged 12–25 years) and the sector that works with them.
YACVic provides additional targeted advocacy and services through our key services, YACVic Rural and the Youth Disability Advocacy Service, and our auspice partner, the Koorie Youth Council.
Do you have the drive to be instrumental in raising the expectations of young disabled people? In this role you will share incredible moments of discovery and growth by supporting the leaders of tomorrow.
This position is only available for those who identify as a disabled person under the special measure of the EOA.
We are looking for someone who is flexible, motivated and willing to play an active part in a collaborative and close-knit team.
To be eligible to apply for this position you must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or hold a valid work permit or visa.
