The AHCWA Youth Program is a program led by Aboriginal youth, for Aboriginal youth to advocate for Western Australia’s young First Nations people.
The AHCWA Youth Committee is comprised of Aboriginal young people between the ages of 18 and 29. Members come together to discuss current issues affecting young Aboriginal people across all the regions of Western Australia, and put forward options for addressing these issues to the AHCWA Board of Directors. The AHCWA Youth Committee members are also regularly provided with opportunities to contribute to and provide feedback on relevant policy and program development both on a community and government level.
The AHCWA Youth Committee provides oversight, support and guidance for the coordination and facilitation of the AHCWA Youth Conference program and can be used as consultants on policy, strategies and program development to ensure the work being done in Western Australia around youth health is inclusive and culturally safe for Aboriginal young people.
