One of the best things about our state is the beautiful diversity in our people and our communities.  The QFCC provides meaningful opportunities for all young Queenslanders to participate in and inform our work. Children and young people’s perspectives shed a unique light on the issues that impact them today and into the future. Their stories and experiences are important to see and learn from.

The YAC is one way the QFCC champions the voices of children and young people to provide youth perspectives and leadership to the QFCC. The YAC meets regularly to talk about issues affecting young people and provide advice to the Commissioners on what is important to children and young people in Queensland. They also work with other young Queenslanders to identify the key issues, designs innovative solutions and implement responses to address these issues.
