Hindmarsh Shire Youth Council

Youth Events | Our Youth Councillors

The Hindmarsh Shire Youth Council provides an opportunity for young people to participate in making their community a better place to live. Youth Councillors meet to discuss issues that are important to youth within Hindmarsh Shire and also facilitate the staging of events and activities for young people throughout the Shire.

The Youth Council is driven by young people to benefit young people. With support from Hindmarsh Shire Council and its staff, the Youth Council are able to deliver events such as pool parties, live music, movie nights and other activities. The Youth Council may also tackle important social issues and develop initiatives to raise awareness of issues such as mental health, climate change and gender diversity and equality. Youth Councillors have the opportunity to advise Hindmarsh Shire Council on what is important to the youth in each of our communities.

Youth Council provides its membership with many learning opportunities and helps to develop leadership, public speaking and project management skills whilst also building their confidence and resilience.
