Youth Council positions open
Local youth have been encouraged to apply for a position on the 2019 NSW Youth Advisory Council.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Mr Scot MacDonald, said the Council was responsible for advising the NSW Government on issues of importance to young people, as well as evaluating youth-related policies.
Mr MacDonald said it was a great opportunity for local youth to represent their views on policies and programs affecting young people.
"I encourage all local young people to apply for the opportunity to represent our community," Mr MacDonald said.
"Council membership is open to all NSW residents between the ages of 12 and 24.
"The NSW Youth Advisory Council is another avenue that the NSW Liberal National Government is consulting with youth right across NSW."
One of the key roles of the Council is to provide advice to the Advocate for Children and Young People, Mr Andrew Johnson.
More information and application forms is available on the Advocate for Children and Young People's website www.acyp.nsw.gov.au or by calling (02) 9248 0970.
Applications close at midnight on Sunday, September 30.
