​The Lord Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (LMYAC) is a Brisbane City Council initiative to develop young people as leaders, and is designed in mind to give student representatives the voice to raise issues and share ideas about Brisbane City Council policies, local laws, services and programs that affect young people.

Student delegates are also afforded the opportunity to generate and share new ideas around the environment, social, creative and economic factors that influence young people's lives in Brisbane.

Stefanie, Year 11 was a member of the LMYAC in 2020, handing over her delegation to Year 10 QACI Representative - Wavey.  Stefanie provides us with a reflection of her time in the LMYAC.

Last year in 2020, I had the privilege of representing QACI at the annual Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. The LMYAC program is specially designed for young people, to amplify voices all across Brisbane. I had the opportunity to represent QACI at meetings in the City Hall every few weeks per term, to discuss key issues, ideas and plans to help make Brisbane better. Unfortunately, some opportunities, such as Youth Week, were cancelled due to COVID-19, but LMYAC still operated via through online meeting sessions during quarantine. 

As a key element of LMYAC, I was put into a group tackling the issue of “Inclusivity and Diversity” in Brisbane, and how to further integrate those elements into our community. I was given the chance to work with many like-minded young people, and we all had a chance to input our thoughts and ideas. We presented our idea in our final gathering and was given consideration by the Right Honourable Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner. Overall, my LMYAC experience has been nothing but positive and rewarding, and I am very grateful for this amazing opportunity.
