Wyndham Youth Council Committee

The Wyndham Youth Council Committee is comprised of young people from across Wyndham aged 16 to 25 who are committed to taking a strategic approach to young people to ensure that they are supported through their learning and earning journeys. The committee brings together local young people and community representatives to provide them with a platform for inter organisational cooperation and discussion, while also celebrating their strengths and assisting them to become leaders in our community.

The Wyndham Youth Council Committee was established in collaboration with Councillor Josh Gilligan, who has the responsibility for the Council’s Learning City Portfolio. The Committee will be a strong advisory arm to all levels of government and business, it will also provide an opportunity to connect young people to seek their advice and recommendations on a range of strategic issues.

The first meeting was held with a large representation of young people from diverse backgrounds and communities attending. Young people identified a range of key issues and priorities in this meeting and will assist in informing the new Wyndham Youth Plan which is being developed for 2018 onwards, and will also help to shape key strategies within Council.

Youth Services are excited to be running this committee and hope that the actions of some inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become our future leaders.

For information about this committee or to request a copy of the meeting minutes, email youthinwyndham@wyndham.vic.gov.au or call 8734 1355 during business hours.
