Council is committed to ensuring a good range of quality services and facilities for young people. As part of this commitment, we employ a full time Youth Activities Coordinator and a part time Youth Development Officer.
Council is currently working in partnership with young people and the wider community to establish its own Youth Council and to develop and implement a Youth Action Plan. This will guide our ongoing work with young people in the Shire.
Regular workshops and activities are run throughout the year including school holidays, at the Youth Activity Centre, which also has a well equipped sound studio. Each year Council coordinates Youth Week activities such as RUKKUS, a local music and skate event.
All of these programs represent a significant contribution by Council to improving the lives of young people across our community.
In addition to direct services Council also funds and/or provides support to local organisations such as Byron Youth Service, the Uncle Project, Street Cruise, Byron Community Campus and other youth programs.
