GVYP Advocacy Committee
The GV Young Professionals is a group of young people working and living in the Goulburn Valley. Our mission is to attract and retain young professionals in the region by providing opportunities for social connection as well as personal and professional development.
We are developing an advocacy committee to represent young people working and living in the region around issues such as housing affordability, career development, training and education opportunities, health and welfare.
As representatives of the broader community, the committee will represent the needs of students and people in their early career stages from different backgrounds and from different fields of work or study. Their focus will be on strategy and advocacy for young people in the region. They will work with local organisations, businesses and government to develop projects that address current and emerging needs of young people and their employers. The committee will function as a sub-committee of the GVYP, leveraging existing networks, resources and capacity to carry out their projects.
Who we are looking for:
• people who have demonstrated leadership in their community
• people who are committed to making the GV a better place to live and work
• people who are interested in representing their community and want to gain experience in advocacy
