HYPA Youth Leadership Team

HYPA's YLT - Youth Leadership Team is comprised of past and present participants of HYPA, aged 16-25. The YLT concept is inspired by the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) model, which provides young people with a voice in policy development at local and state government levels. The YLT works with HYPA to ensure young people’s voices are heard and reflected within the organisation and its initiatives. HYPA's YLT aims to bring young people together and empower them, "We are here to let young people know that no matter how hard it seems now, you can get through it - like we did!"

Purpose & Goals:
