Horsham welcomes youth council

Sixteen young people from the Horsham Rural City Council area have been welcomed as members of the municipality’s second Youth Council.

Despite COVID disruption, the new Youth Council have been able to meet in person to start planning new initiatives and events for young people in Horsham.

Mayor Robyn Gulline said it was a great opportunity for young people to learn about Council and leadership.

“Being part of the HRCC Youth Council is an opportunity for these young people to have a voice in our community and is an invaluable learning experience,” Mayor Gulline said.

“As with the first Youth Council, this group will help guide decisions for precincts and infrastructure that affect them, and their peers, now and into the future,” she said.

The Youth Council is made up of people aged 12 to 25 who are living within the municipality.

The next meeting of the Youth Council will see the group determine a program of delivery over the next two years.
