The Youth Advocacy Centre opened its doors in June 1981 to create a service for children caught up in Queensland's youth justice system.
YAC affirms that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Owners of Australia and acknowledges their unique relationship with their ancestral Country. In particular, we acknowledge the Turrbal and Jagera peoples, the Traditional Custodians of the land in and around Brisbane, and pay our respects to their Elders, past and present. We acknowledge our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander staff and the insight they bring to YAC and their support for it to continue to develop as a culturally competent organisation.
YAC is proud to support its Indigenous clients and staff, its LGBTIQ+ clients and staff and welcomes diversity in all its forms.
