Passionate and progressive young people have the opportunity to make a difference by becoming a member of the City of Bunbury Youth Advisory Council (YAC), which is currently calling for new members.

YAC plays a pivotal role in organising youth-oriented events and being a formal committee of Council advises the Mayor and Councillors on current plans, strategies and proposals affecting the region’s youth.

Successful applicants, aged between 12 and 25, have the opportunity to work on exciting projects that benefit young people in Bunbury such as Youth Connections, SHIFT Festival, the City of Bunbury Australia Day Celebrations and TEDx Youth Bunbury. It is also a great place to learn leadership skills and support a variety of youth initiatives.

Bunbury Youth Mayor Sean Smith urged interested young people to be proactive and get involved.

“If you are passionate about Bunbury and an innovative thinker, or you have an interest in local government, then YAC is the perfect place for you,” Mr Smith said.

Applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
