As part of the Upper Murray Bushfire Recovery process, the CNC has organised a Youth Working Group to give young people aged 12-25 a voice, influence and control over how the recovery process impacts young people and what they would like to see for their future in the Upper Murray.
The group is driven by young people with the support of the UM CRC and Towong Shire and is being facilitated by CNC youth worker, Errol Obran.
Young people in the group will be initially focusing on:
- Reviewing and discussing current community programs
- Learning & building on skills on how to be an effective community group and influence community outcomes
- Working with recovery officers and youth workers to access funding and grants and implement their own programs
- Influencing how youth support services are delivered in the future
Please encourage all the young people in your life to become part of this group. It is, after all, their future and we want them to play an active part in determining the future of the Upper Murray.
There are no requirements for long term commitments, complicated governance or any significant workload. They just need to come along and have a voice.
