Youth Council - 2023 events calendar

The Youth Council has branched out to accommodate younger and older audiences:

Little Rainbows is open to the younger 10-12 age group, and offers an opportunity for social connection and age appropriate activities.

Youth Council (or the “YAC”) is attended by older cohorts of 13-17 year olds, where they develop projects and initiatives for young people and young adults in the community, and work to raise the profile of Rainbow Families amongst younger audiences. Older members also carry out the very important role of mentoring our younger members.

Each group meets twice a month over food and fun activities. 

Both the YAC and Little Rainbows give members an opportunity to forge friendships, develop new skills and build a strong and articulate next generation. 

Getting involved

Young people can join the YAC by contacting us.
