Nominations are now open for the AlburyCity Youth Council.
Young people aged between 14 and 18 who are passionate about representing the views of young people in Albury are encouraged to nominate.
Mayor Kevin Mack said the youth council provided a great platform for young people to get their voice heard directly with council.
“We’re looking for enthusiastic young people who want to have a say on the programs and services that impact them,” Cr Mack said.
“We want to make sure council is adequately planning for young people, so it’s really important we hear what they have to say. Youth councillors play a really important role as advocates and spokespeople for their peers.
“Apart from influencing the services and facilities we deliver to young people, it’s an excellent development opportunity for its participants. Youth council is a great way to learn problem-solving, budgeting, networking and team work.”
Youth councillors will organise an annual youth forum, which is used to determine the needs of young people and the issues they face in the region.
Youth councillors help AlburyCity develop plans and strategies that make sure young people are represented in council’s decision-making process.
Youth councillors can be self-nominated, nominated by an individual or by an organisation. There will be nine youth councillor positions, with a youth mayor and deputy youth mayor.
The youth councillors will hold their position for a 12-month period, with an overlap period allowing handover to the next youth council.
Nomination forms are available from AlburyCity Customer Service or online at: alburycity.nsw.gov.au/youthcouncil
Nominations close on 28 April 2017.
