Civics Opportunities for Young People

There are hundreds of civics opportunities for South Australian young people who are interested to become involved in advocating for positive change across their communities. They range from local, state and federal government organisations and agencies to philanthropic businesses, not-for-profits and corporate foundations.

Their members include many volunteers and there are a number of youth led organisations too. You can find out what is involved in becoming a member of the SA SRC, or volunteer to join your local council youth advisory committee. You can participate in YMCA’s Youth Parliament or be part of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition to name just a few of the opportunities available to you as a young citizen of South Australia.

Check out the list below to see which organisations and issues interest you, and simply follow the links to the source information for full details on how you can get involved!
