The Program The Tasmanian Youth Advisory Committee (TasYAC) is made up of around 12 young people (aged between 12 and 30) from across Tasmania who have two roles with the Red Cross: to provide a youth voice to the Red Cross leadership team; and to organise and run events that engage young people and raise awareness of the work that the Red Cross does in the community. This involves strategy, brainstorming and a wide exposure to the work of the Red Cross at the local and national level.
The opportunity This position is a voluntary position which provides exposure to humanitarian work, drawing on the strong legacy of the Red Cross in International Humanitarian Law, international aid, and a range of community services. Red Cross is an international organisation with millions of volunteers worldwide. To get involved at a decision-making level, you need to be available to attend monthly TasYAC meetings - either in person, or online. The times of these meetings are negotiable, and they last for roughly 2 hours. You may be asked to prepare for meetings in advance by reading and considering documents or other information. The TasYAC may require additional hours throughout the year when working on projects and events.
The impact Encourages, improves and increases awareness of issues of young people in Tasmania.
Builds an inclusive, diverse and active humanitarian movement based on voluntary service.
