Queensland Academies Creative Industries (QACI) would like to congratulate Gefion Jepsen, Year 12 who at the end of last year was officially selected as a Youth Champion voluntarily working for Queensland’s Youth Advisory Council. The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) champions the voices of children and young people to provide youth perspectives and leadership to the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC).
Gefion will regularly meet with council groups in 2021 to help collectively provide advice to the Commissioners on what is important to children and young people in Queensland. Gefion welcomes fellow students to contact her at school to provide input and feedback regarding youth issues and perspectives this year. Gefion’s work with the Youth Advisory Council this year will significantly contribute to her CAS (Community, Activity, Service) Project this year, a core component of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
