Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is calling on residents with a passion for working with young people to nominate for positions on the Regional Youth Advisory Committee (RYAC).
Applications from young people between 18-25 with a passion for improving outcomes for their regional peers also are welcome.
TRC Environment and Community Services committee chair and RYAC chair Cr James O’Shea said Council welcomed expressions of interest from applicants across a range of community and professional backgrounds, from community services to employment, education, health, disability, child protection, youth justice, police and emergency services backgrounds.
Cr O’Shea said the advisory committee’s role was to represent the interests of young people by providing strategic advice for Council’s consideration.
“I’m positive that the committee can add its collective knowledge and support to Council, especially around the future implementation of Council’s Youth Strategy 2019-2021,” Cr O’Shea said.
Meetings will be held on the second Thursday of the month from 9.30am-11.30pm, except for public holidays. The term of the Regional Youth Advisory committee will end in March 2024.
Enquiries and/or submission of expressions of interest can be emailed to [email protected] or posted to Toowoomba Regional Council, PO Box 3021, Toowoomba, Qld, 4350.
Please outline your previous experience. Applications close at 5pm on Friday, July 10.
