Join Youth Council today

16 May 2014

DO you want to learn new skills, have your say on local issues and plan some great youth events?

Are you passionate about helping your peers, being heard and sharing your views?

If you are aged from 12 – 24 and want to learn event management and leadership skills, meet new people, represent other young people and have lots of fun, then Alpine Shire Youth Council is for you.

Councillor Ron Janas said Youth Council presented a fantastic opportunity for young people to have a say in Council decision-making and do great things for local youth.

“Our Youth Councillors learn fantastic leadership skills, work with young people from other shires, learn how Council operates and gain really important experience,” he said.

“They represent the young people in their community and bring their ideas to Council.

“Youth Councillors help plan and run skate, music and arts events, and we’re always looking for fresh ideas on what events we can run for local youth.”

Youth Council meets once a month.
