The Koorie Youth Summit is the largest gathering in Victoria created for and by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged 16-28 years. Since 2014, Koorie Youth Council (KYC) has hosted the event to create a safe space for young mob to gather from around the state to connect with each other, discuss what is important to us, be proud, learn, share and celebrate our culture.
Each year, our Summit centres around a theme, and features deadly speakers and yarning circles and workshops. Previous speakers have included Uncle Archie Roach, Adam Briggs, Adam Goodes, Aunty Di Kerr, Tunchai Redvers, as well as members of our Executive and deadly young people.
To ensure the event is available to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, KYC provides support for young people traveling from regional and rural areas.
