Youth

Corangamite Shire's Youth team work closely with young people between the ages of 12-25 years to help develop and build on skills as well as promote active participation in the municipality.

Council is committed to:

  • Genuinely support young people to respond to issues, develop ideas and implement the projects and activities they are interested in
  • Provide the time and resources to help young people develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to articulate what they want to do, and empower them to achieve it
  • Be a strong collaboration between workers and young people
  • Be highly flexible in our approach to working with young people - including understanding young people's needs for appropriate meeting times, allocating tasks, meeting formats, etc.
  • Understand the diverse needs of young people involved in activities
  • Create welcoming, safe and respectful environments where young people can feel a sense of belonging
  • Deliver programs that are culturally appropriate
  • Utilise the interests of young people to engage them in creative and relevant programs
  • Understand the issues of importance to young people in their local area, and
  • Build strong partnerships with other local organisations to maximise young people's participation and development in the community
