Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic) is the peak body and leading policy advocate on young people’s issues in Victoria. YACVic’s vision is that the rights of young people in Victoria are respected, and they are active, visible and valued in their communities. YACVic is an independent, for-purpose, member-driven organisation that represents young people (aged 12–25 years) and the sector that works with them.
Young people and youth professionals in rural and regional Victoria often have unique insights and face different challenges to those in metropolitan Melbourne. In response, YACVic Rural expands our state-wide advocacy for young people in regional communities and the rural youth sector.
YACVic’s ‘Future Proof: Young People, Disaster Recovery and (Re)building Communities’ project (Future Proof) is funded by the Australian Government Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants Program, which provides funding for projects centred on community recovery and resilience activities in response to the 2019-20 bushfires. YACVic is the lead coordinating partner for Future Proof, bringing together a Coalition of fifteen organisations from fire-affected communities in Eastern Victoria.
The Disaster Resilience Operations Coordinator will be responsible for coordinating and overseeing the administrative, logistical, financial and compliance aspects of the 15-member Coalition Partnership and the Project. The position will work closely with the Disaster Resilience Youth Coordinator, and actively engage with all Coalition Partners and other project stakeholders.
The role will also manage the relationship and reporting with the Federal Government department responsible for the Black Summer Grants program. This includes monitoring and reporting on the progress of the project, ensuring financial management and acquittals of funding in collaboration with the Corporate Services Team, and managing the logistics of the project evaluation in collaboration with the Disaster Resilience Youth Coordinator and Victoria University.
