A Youth Summit, an initiative of the recently formed Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) and the South Australian Multicultural and Ethnic Affairs Commission (SAMEAC), was held on Saturday 11 October 2008. The objectives of the Summit were to discuss the lack of engagement of youth in the life of ethnic communities and the future of the clubs and the services currently provided, and to identify strategies and actions to address these issues. Community leaders have for some time expressed concern about the difficulty in engaging young people in the cultural life of ethnic groups. A gathering of young people through a Summit was considered an important first step by YAC in addressing these concerns.
