Young people as partners
Youth Advisory Council
The Youth Advisory Council is a 16 to 17 member council that advises Orygen on implementing its 2022-27 strategic plan. Their input ensures that we strengthen young people's voices and allow them to shape our work. Youth Advisory Council members are also key stakeholders in the development and review of Orygen's Youth Participation Strategy.
headspace Youth Advisory Groups
Orygen is the lead agency for four headspace sites across north-west Melbourne; Glenroy, Sunshine, Craigieburn, Melton and Werribee. Each headspace Centre has a Youth Advocacy Group (YAG), or equivalent, combined with related community awareness activities. YAGs are an integral part of each headspace centre and are engaged in a broad range of activities that include community events, policy review and promotional resources.
