Speak Up Engage is council's youth engagement and development program. The program is about giving young people a voice. Since 2008, council has assisted young people to develop and deliver youth focused research and engagement projects across the region, working to identify the needs, experiences and interests of young people.
The 2017 program has been created by young people for young people with the current program participants working alongside Council to design it. This unique and innovative program aims to develop the leadership potential of local young people and will provide project management experience, free professional and personal development training and mentoring opportunities. Participants will also be given the unique opportunity to work with council staff to create a new Youth Action Plan that will shape how we support young people in to the future.
