Bundaberg Region youth who would like to have their say in community matters are being encouraged to submit an expression of interest in joining the 2022 Youth Development Action Team.
YDAT is a Council-led initiative open to those between 12 to 25 years old, with members adding their voice and assistance in decision-making processes involving young people.
Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said there were plenty of benefits in becoming part of YDAT.
“Members will be a valued contributor in adding their thoughts, opinion and assistance in the development and delivery of Council's Community Development Strategy,” she said.
“They will help Council to identify issues being experienced by young people across the region and will have an active role in representing and carrying out various activities within the community.”
Cr McPhee said, in the past, YDAT members had been part of fun and important projects including the Knock Ya Socks Off competition, the Sour Words Hurt initiative and Positive Postcards.
“These projects were all about bringing our youth community together to engage on some very important topics including bullying, creativity, spreading messages of kindness and more,” she said.
“Not only does YDAT help to bring awareness to social issues and other important messages, the group also allows members to form a connection with each other and the rest of the community.”
