AYAC is working to see the removal of inequality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous young Australians, which has resulted from a legacy of colonisation and injustice.  AYAC proudly celebrates and acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture and is committed to supporting Indigenous leadership and success.

AYAC believes that…

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people should not suffer discrimination in any form.
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people have the right to the same access to education, healthcare and employment opportunities as all young Australians.
  • Genuine opportunities to learn traditional languages and culture are offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders young people.
