Interested in joining the Young People’s Legal Rights Centre (YOUTHLAW) Board?
Nominate before 5pm on Friday 11 November 2022
Youthlaw is a dynamic not-for-profit community legal centre based in Melbourne providing free legal advice and representation to young people aged under 25, throughout Victoria.
We were established in 2001 and have grown over the years to include many services and programs including our adolescent violence in the home service, an outreach service via headspace and other youth centres around Victoria, a service to young people in child protection residential care, and a program for child protection care leavers.
The Board is voluntary and we meet about 6 times a year in the evening from 6.30pm
This year at our AGM on the 16th November, we are looking for four new Board members.
You do not need to have special skills or experience of being on a Board. We just need people who are passionate and committed to upholding and advocating for the rights of young people, particularly those who are vulnerable or face prejudice.
