Members sought for youth Reference Group

​PEOPLE working, studying or volunteering in the local youth sector are being sought to be part of a new Reference Group.

Shire President David Lavell said Shire of Mundaring was gearing up to review the current Youth Strategy and youth services model.

"Every few years the Shire reviews our services and strategy to make sure we are delivering consistent results in our community," he said.

"Youth services are delivered by the Shire’s Seen and Heard Youth Program who are based in Swan View but engage with young people aged 12 to 20 years throughout the entire Shire.

"Young people are the next generation of residents and it's important to gauge their views, provide productive outlets and cater services to their needs."

Cr Lavell said the Reference Group would guide the review of the strategy and service and have input into the consultation plan.

"We are seeking members who would be able to commit to a maximum of four meetings between October 2016 and May 2017," he said.

"Whether you are a young person, student, parent, teacher, youth group leader, sporting club office holder or pastor, this is a great opportunity to get involved.

"Your input will ensure the Shire's resources support our young people to thrive in life and complement the tireless efforts of local organisations, churches, schools and clubs."

The first meeting of the Reference Group is scheduled for Thursday 13 October from 3.30pm to 5pm.
