Kingborough Council is calling for Expressions of Interest for young people to join Youth Action Kingborough (YAK).
Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said YAK provides an opportunity for young people to be involved in Council activities and helps develop leadership skills.
“YAK is actively involved with our community projects and works closely with our Community Development team to help initiate, organise and plan events,” Cr Wriedt said.
“Ideas raised through YAK have motivated many great events such as the youth markets and drop-in sessions which create friendly spaces for young people here in Kingborough.
“YAK meets once a month in Kingston at our fantastic Kingborough Community Hub.”
To join YAK you must be:
– Between 12 and 25 years of age
– Committed to attending monthly meetings (Tuesday or Thursday tbc)
– Living or studying in Kingborough.
If you, or a young person you know, is interested in joining YAK, contact Clare Scallon at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 6211 8200.
