The Provincial Youth Committee is a collection of youth representatives and youth officers with representatives from all seven dioceses. The committee come together to discuss the status of the youth within their diocese, plan provincial youth events and to ensure the voice of the young people is heard.
To ensure our young people are heard meetings are held by two youth representatives that hold the position of chair and secretary of the PYC. All youth representatives hold a voting position to ensure that it is the young people that make decisions about what happens within the province.
The Provincial Youth Committee provides a safe space for young people to voice their opinions, be heard and have a role within the church.
