Youth Council

The 2017 Youth Council has been announced

Albury's young people have 12 new faces in their corner, after the election of the 2017 Youth Councillors.

The new Youth Mayor Isabella Percy, and Deputy Mayor Sonali Kagithala, are committed to ensuring young people have an active voice in our community.

The Youth Council has some major projects and events coming up, such as the 2017 AlburyCity Youth Forum that will work on strategies to tackle issues such as drug and alcohol problems.

The Youth Council began in 2003 to advocate on behalf of Albury’s youth. It’s a great way to develop skills while making our city a better place for young people. We help organise and co-ordinate projects and events such as the Youth Connect Card initiative, the Kool Skools awards night, leadership conferences, youth forums, Clean Up Graffiti Day and the All-abilities Disco.

Youth Council objectives include:

  • To represent and raise the profile of young people
  • Foster understanding and awareness of youth issues within local government and the wider community
  • Identify and address gaps in youth services
  • Assist AlburyCity in formulating policy on youth affairs
  • Provide opportunities for civic engagement and to have fun working on projects with peers

Nominations have closed for 2017.

Nominations for 2018 will reopen in February. If you would like to be a part of Youth Council in 2018, you can download the Youth Council Position Description below.
