Young people

There are over 99,000 young people aged 12 to 24 years living on the Gold Coast.

We work closely with local schools and a network of more than 200 community and private organisations to support young people across the city.

We acknowledge the critical role these groups play in the lives of our young people.

Youth Program 2027 – embracing our young potential

One in 6 of our residents is aged between 12 and 24. The Program provides direction on how we will support young people and respond to their current and emerging needs. View our Youth Program page.
