Melton Youth Advisory Network (MYAN)

The Melton Youth Advisory Network (MYAN) is a group that meets monthly to discuss, advocate for and address local issues relevant to young people. The City of Melton has the highest youth population in Victoria with approximately 18,000 young people between the ages of 12-25 in one of the fastest growing communities in Australia (2006).

The network's role is to:

  • advocate for change 
  • identify local issues 
  • share information
  • provide an opportunity for secondary consultation 
  • develop and implement an Annual Action Plan

Sub groups assist MYAN with the necessary working component related to the Action Plan.

MYAN distributes youth-related information to local government and youth-specific services. The network is also an avenue for youth related agencies to feed their concerns to Council.

The network takes an active part in guiding youth policy in cooperation with the Melton City Council. MYAN meetings take place at the Melton Learning Hub.
