Presbyterian Youth Victoria aims to make and nurture disciples of the Lord Jesus among the youth and children of Victoria, bringing youth from all across the state together to encounter the Gospel, be encouraged, and build positive friendships in a safe environment. We primarily do this with annual camps and one-day events throughout the year where we equip youth and their leaders to continue to grow in and serve Christ every day in their local churches and youth groups.

PYV is a volunteer-run organisation. In addition to the many volunteer leaders recruited for each camp or event, six subcommittees meet across the year to plan and prepare for PYV's next event, overseen by the Youth and Children's committee of the Presbyterian Church of Victoria (the PYCC):

  1. The Strategy and Operations subcommittee;
  2. the Finance subcommittee;
  3. the Policy and Procedure subcommittee;
  4. the Promotions subcommittee;
  5. the Leadership Accreditation subcommittee;
  6. and the Interview Panel for the hire of a new worker.

To support the work of these volunteers the PYCC committee employs Erin Dykstra as events manager and a remote assistant to monitor the mail inbox. The PYC is looking to employ a new Youth and Children's worker to direct PYV and provide discipleship to leaders and youth alike. Read more below:
