The Sydney Jewish Museum Youth Committee (SJMYC) is made up of a diverse group of secondary students from across NSW that engages with the Museum in a variety of ways. Members of this committee have the unique opportunity to make a difference and use their voice to make a better world.
Members of the SJMYC perform the following roles:
- Act as an ambassador for the Sydney Jewish Museum, promoting its work on morality, social justice, democracy and human rights and embodying its corresponding core values. Partake in unique behind-the-scenes experiences that arise as part of different SJM projects (e.g. meeting with Survivors, testing new technologies, handling new artefacts)
- Review and advise SJM staff on temporary exhibitions, education programs, education resources and commemorative events from a youth perspective.
- Discuss relevant current affairs issues and the SJM’s response to such issues.

Applications for the 2021-2022 SJMYC are now closed.
Thank you to everyone who applied. The committee will be announced soon.
