Young People

Our Young People team are qualified youth workers who purposefully engage our youth, and offer them support around Bayside. We also organise programs, fun activities,  and skill-development workshops that target the interests and needs of our youth.

Youth Advisory Group

We are inviting local young people to submit an expression of interest to join our Youth Advisory Group (YAG). 

The YAG will be represented by Bayside young people aged between 12 to 18 who will ensure youth voices are heard when local decisions are made.

Young people who are selected to join the YAG will have the opportunity to actively participate in decisions that impact youth living in Bayside, and empower them to contribute to meaningful outcomes within their community. 

Young people must submit their EOI by 5pm, Thursday 25 May. 

Regular programs

Drop-in provides a safe space where young people aged 12 and up, can visit community youth centres to connect with local support services, and enjoy activities that promote positive engagement and social wellbeing.
