One in six of our residents are aged between 12-24. Our Program provides direction on how we will support young people and respond to their current and emerging needs.
The City plays a vital role in working with others to create an enabling environment which supports strong and caring communities, where young people can grow and develop with confidence.
The Program has been developed in consultation with young people and the youth sector, within the context of the City’s strategic direction, current youth portfolio, and general youth issues and trends.
Program priorities have been incorporated under 3 key focus areas – Get Involved, Get Connected and Get Ahead.
Each focus area is vital to addressing the needs of our young people and achieving the Program Vision – ‘Our Youth. Our Future – a program embracing our young potential’.
