Yarra Youth Policy
Council is seeking community input into a new Youth Policy which will outline a vision for young people aged 12 to 25 who live, work, study or socialise in Yarra.
The policy will provide Council with a framework for planning and delivering services and programs for local young people over the next three years.
Council is seeking ideas and feedback from young people, families, schools, community agencies and the youth service sector to ensure the policy meets the needs, interests and aspirations of Yarra’s young people.
Council will use feedback received to develop the draft policy which is expected to be released for further community input in June 2013.
Have your say
We are seeking your ideas and comments to help inform the development of the new Youth Policy by Tuesday 28 May. You can do this in a number of ways:
