The National Youth Council (NYC) is the primary body representing the youth members of Scouts Australia at a national level. It makes recommendations directly to the National Team on a range of issues affecting Scouting in Australia, the issues of young people, plus a range of other topics. The National Youth Council consists of 25 members who each serve a three-year term. We have members from all corners of Australia, aged between 13 and 25.

The Council is separated into four working Patrols, each researching and writing recommendations on their own topics. Excluding the Vice Chairs, every member is part of a patrol. The Patrol Leaders, along with the National Commissioner Youth Empowerment and Vice Chairs, make up the NYC Executive.
