Youth Council offers its participants the chance to develop leadership skills, understand how local government operates and develop a relationship with Councillors, Council management and officers. Youth Council focus on a variety of youth and town issues, events and safety programs. This unique opportunity gives the Youth Council a chance to represent the youth within Moira Shire.
In turn, Councillors and staff at Moira Shire Council have the privilege of working with motivated and talented young people who may well be tomorrow's leaders.
