Youth Councils were established to help young people (12 -25 years) gain a better understanding of Local Government and to improve communications between young people, Council, and the community.
The aim of the Tumut and Tumbarumba based Youth Councils is to provide a forum for consultation between Council and the youth of the local area to achieve:
- Promotion of a positive profile of young people
- Active involvement in increasing the level and variety of entertainment and recreation for young people
- Provision of a forum where young people can express their views and those views will be heard and respected
- Improved two-way communication lines between young people and the rest of the community
Youth Council members meet once a month and take part in many community events throughout the year.
