Central Coast Council is inviting aspiring youth leaders to become members for the Youth For Youth (Y4Y) action team and make a difference to the lives of young people across the coast.

Applications are now open for membership of Y4Y, a team of 12 young people who will make youth-led initiatives and ideas happen in our community.

Director of Connected Communities Julie Vaughan said the program engaged and empowered young people through action, advocacy and advice.

“Council is committed to working with the young people of the Central Coast to ensure they feel respected and a valued part of the community,” Ms Vaughan said.

“This group represents a fantastic opportunity for young people to have their voice heard and make a difference. We are looking for young people who are keen to be actively involved in enhancing the Coast as a great place for young people to live, work and play.”

Mayor Lisa Matthews said the program is a great opportunity to develop leadership and decision-making skills and effectively contribute to the community.

“Young people will be supported to develop their leadership skills and drive youth lead initiatives and ideas,” Mayor Matthews said.

“Members develop and deliver events, activities and a range of resources for young people. For example, this year’s Y4Y team have delivered an annual youth forum, assisted in the development of our Youth Strategy and have been involved in organising two fantastic youth events to be held during November, including a 5km fun/run walk to promote positive health and wellbeing and a life skills expo.

“This program is open for participants aged 14-24 who live, work, or study on the Central Coast.

“I encourage all young people who want to make a difference to apply.”

Program participants will be invited to attend a welcome lunch in December, participate in a three-day-leadership camp in January 2020, and will play a part in Youth Week in April 2020.

Applications for the Y4Y program close 27 October with successful applicants announced in early December.
