Nillumbik’s young people are encouraged to have their say and apply to be part of the Youth Council.
Applications for the Nillumbik Youth Council 2023-25 are now open until Sunday 12 February.
Young people aged 15-25 years old who live, work, study, volunteer or play in Nillumbik are invited to apply.
The Nillumbik Youth Council acts as a peak advisory group to Council, a formal platform for young people to have their say on issues, needs and aspirations important to them and impacting on young people in Nillumbik.
Members work together to develop local initiatives and projects for young people, and provide advice to Council about how these issues can be addressed.
Nillumbik Mayor Ben Ramcharan said that joining the Youth Council is a great way for young people in Nillumbik to get involved and have a say. “It’s really exciting to be able to voice your ideas and collaborate with councillors to make a difference in our local area.”
“We want to hear from young people in Nillumbik, as their ideas are fresh and innovative. They’ve got their finger on the pulse and it’s important to hear their perspective,” he says.
