Youth event to raise issues of 2020

5 February, 2020

Gunnedah’s young people will be invited to talk about the issues they face at a roundtable discussion next week hosted by the Gunnedah’s Youth Interagency.

People aged under 25 are being asked to give a unique perspective of the challenges facing young people in 2020 at an event to be held at the Smithurst Theatre from 10 to 11.30am on Tuesday, 11 February 2020.

Young people are asked to create the agenda and raise their issues through commenting on the “We want to hear from you” post on the Gunnedah Shire Council, Civic and Youth Space Gunnedah Facebook sites.

The event will see the young people of Gunnedah meet with industry experts that service the region at the Regional Youth Interagency Meeting, with a twist.

Representatives from a number of youth agencies will be on hand to speak with our young leaders about some of the issues raised.

This forum gives under 25s the opportunity to have ideas and concerns heard through discussion with industry professionals and helping to shape the way the Gunnedah community services the youth.

The event is intended to create lasting partnerships between youth and youth workers, and to help guide the direction of service provision in the community.

Young people who speak up have the chance to win 4 x tickets to the Civic Theatre or a JBL Portable Speaker.

The event will be filmed as part of Gunnedah’s Youth Voices Initiative funded by the Department of Family and Community Services.
