What is the Influence YAK?

The Influence Youth Action Kalamunda (YAK) is a group for young people, led by young people. If you live, study, work or play in the City of Kalamunda, are aged 12 - 20 and are passionate about making a difference to your community, then we want you to join the team. As a YAK member, you will get the opportunity to learn new skills, be inspired, share ideas and develop creative solutions to community issues - all whilst having a sweet time! 

The Influence YAK meets for one hour after school every fortnight during the school term. Each Term at these meetings, the group will identify an issue or topic impacting young people or the wider community, and develop a project or solution to address this. Please keep in mind we have young people of all ages, abilities, passions and skills in The Influence YAK. This means that you can get involved as much or as little as you like, and work to your skill sets and interests.

What’s involved?

Team Building Day - July School Holidays

Challenge yourself and get to know your team mates!
Where: Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp
When: July 11 2018, 10am - 3pm
During the July School holidays, young people interested in joining the Influence YAK are invited to come along to a jam-packed day of adventure and team building at the Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp. Here you will get to know your teammates through a series of challenges including a high ropes course, raft making and team building games.

At the end of the day you will take part in a brainstorming session, deciding as a group two key issues or topics that you would like to focus on over the next six months. These issues or topics may be something that interests or impacts you personally, or it may affect your community, school, friends or family. This is an opportunity for you take the lead and to have a positive impact on your local area.

Team Meetings take place at the Kalamunda Library every second Tuesday from 4pm - 5pm during the School Term. Yummy snacks are always provided to get your creative juices flowing! The dates and themes of The Influence YAK meetings in Term 3, 2018 are on the following page.
