The Young Australians' Cancer Initiative
The ACHSC has developed a free digital cancer syllabus with leading cancer researchers and academics from the University of Melbourne. It is for high school students who want to learn more about cancer.
High School Cancer Symposium and Competition
The ACHSC runs the VIC and NSW High School Cancer Symposium. The Symposium is a day where students can visit working research labs, hear from leading researchers, and much more.
High School Cancer Masterclasses
The ACHSC runs a series of 5 innovative masterclasses delivering high-quality cancer education to Australian high school students.
University Cancer Case Competition
The University Cancer Case Competition invites students to form multidisciplinary teams to tackle real public health issues. Teams are judged by experts in the field and compete to win a public health internship and other prizes.
We are an independent non-profit social impact organisation, founded by students from the University of Melbourne.
Through our initiatives, the YACI hopes to nurture a generation of cancer-literate individuals armed with the knowledge to make a substantial contribution towards realising a world free of cancer.
