The Wyndham Youth Civic Participation Project is for people aged 18 – 25 with an interest in how the country is governed.

The project is for Wyndham’s aspiring lawyers, policy makers and community leaders who would like to see behind the curtain of Local, State and Federal politics and government.

Participants will have to opportunity to speak with Councillors, senior public servants, and council staff members, about the pressing issues of the day. Along with completing the program with like-minded young people, participants will also network with past project alumni.

The program will be based at the Youth Resource Centre in Hoppers Crossing, with the group also having the opportunity to visit various sites across Wyndham and take a trip to Parliament House in the CBD of Melbourne.

Applications are open until 26 August 2022 after which time 14 young people will be selected to participate in the project. All expenses associated with the project will be covered by Wyndham City Council.
