Victorian/Tasmanian Youth Cancer Action Board (YCAB)

YCAB is a 12-member board of young people who have had a diagnosis of cancer between the ages of 15 and 25 years. They provide advice and guidance to government and the broader health and community sectors.  

YCAB’s current vision and mission as determined by members is “To improve the lives of young people and their families who are affected by cancer.”  

YCAB advises on cancer policy, priorities and services affecting Victorian and Tasmanian youth. The board also raises AYA cancer awareness through presentations, media appearances and other opportunities.   

Appointments to the Board are made through a formal application and interview process. Membership requires a regular commitment of time. YCAB meets six times per year, online and in-person in the Youth Cancer Centre at Peter Mac in Melbourne.
