Youth Council Meeting Update

Here is an overview of the outcomes from Thursday afternoon’s Youth Council meeting:

  • Council’s Manager of Communications, Karlee Cole presented an overview of the Communications Strategy to the Youth Council, which is on pubic exhibition for feedback until Monday 4 July, 2022. Young people engage with Council communication channels and messaging in differing ways, and they are encouraged to complete the survey by visiting the MyTRC Online Community at
  • The Youth Council moved that they will nominate to sit on various Council Committees and Working Groups. A report from Director – Livable Communities, Gina Vereker proposed that Youth Councillors serve as members on these Committees and Working Groups now that they have settled into their roles and have a greater understanding of how Council operates. Youth Councillors will now consider which Committees and Working Groups they are interested in joining and will discuss further at the next Youth Council meeting.
  • The Youth Council discussed a potential ‘Youth Forum’ in October to provide young people with an opportunity to share youth issues, challenges and experiences with the aim of sending a youth message to government regarding youth needs and priorities through a Tamworth Region ‘Youth Statement’. A ‘Youth Wellness Series’ was also discussed and it was decided that the first of this series will be combined with the potential Youth Forum in October because of the synergies between the two events/series. The Youth Council will explore potential funding and sponsorship opportunities with Council staff.
