Meet the Team
The GCPHY Team includes:
President Andrew Antonopoulos
Andrew Antonopoulos is a tax lawyer located on the Gold Coast who was mentored by former Mayor and State MP, Lex Bell. His clients include some of the city’s leading businesses who he has assisted through various ventures and helped implement numerous growth strategies. Currently, Andrew is the President of the Gold Coast Project for Homeless Youth.
Andrew was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. He studied Political Science after school before working in the European Parliament in Brussels. He later studied law at Bond University. What Andrew brings to the organisation is his education and knowledge, but also his youth and his contacts.
“In my life I see both extremes of the Gold Coast," says Andrew. "Through my work as a tax lawyer I see that side of town. It’s very easy to ignore the other side but I think we still have time to rehabilitate youngsters coming through and create a longer life, a successful life.”
Operations Manager Kylie Minchinton
Kylie Minchinton was appointed the Acting Operations Manager at Gold Coast Project for Homeless Youth, stepping up from her previous position as a successful Team Leader in our transitional and immediate housing.
Kylie has extensive experience in the industry, having begun working at age 18 in a residential service for homeless men with mental health issues. Kylie has also managed services for young people aged 12-25 in Sydney. She brought with her to the Gold Coast a wealth of knowledge and an understanding of both the homeless and mental health sectors.
