Youth Peak Bodies are representative organisations that exist in order to coordinate, support and advocate for their membership and constituents, in this case young Victorians. YPB role is broadly defined as representing young people needs, which may include a client group or service provider group.
There are a range of youth peak bodies in Australia. Without the youth peak bodies, young people would be left with no formal voice on important issues and youth services would be left without any funded body to organise networking, professional development and disseminate information across all youth services.
