A new voice for youth

News Article Date: 
Monday, 6 August 2018

You’re never too young to make a difference in your community.
 
This is the message from Warrnambool City Youth Councillors, who are calling for applicants for the newly-formed Warrnambool City Junior Youth Council.
 
The new council will be made up of local primary school students who will work with the established Youth Council.
 
Youth Council Team Leader Meg Reuel said that the Junior Council will provide feedback, ideas and opinions to the Youth Council as they create projects and goals.
 
“Primary school students are, at times, awarded leadership roles at their schools, but their opinions and ideas may not be heard beyond the school gates,” she said.
 
“With so many great ideas potentially being lost, we thought creating a Junior Youth Council was a good move.
 
“This new group of about 15 passionate students from around Warrnambool will have an opportunity to share opinions and voices, and have their ideas heard within their own community.
 
“It will also be a great way to meet new, like-minded friends.”
 
The group will meet once a month on a Monday afternoon at the Civic Centre, 25 Liebig Street, from 4.15pm – 5pm.

Youth Councillors Andrew Pritchard, Elise Drake, Cassidy Jamieson, Tiffany Tracey and Meg Reuel are on the Junior Youth Council working group.
