Nominate to become a Toowoomba Youth Leader

Young people can now nominate for Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) 2023 Youth Leaders Program.

Young people who live, work or study in the Toowoomba Region aged 14-24 are asked to consider applying as TRC looks for 25 of the Region’s best and brightest youth to join the 2023 program.

Environment and Community Portfolio Chair Cr James O’Shea said the Youth Leaders Program was a great way for young people to engage with Council and have their say on the future direction of the Region.

“The Regional Youth Leaders play an important role in ensuring our programs are relevant, meet the needs of local young people and have the greatest reach possible.

“The Youth Leaders also get the opportunity to learn about our processes and the role of local governments. 

“We encourage them to have a say and develop grass roots projects to create positive change – not only for our Region’s young people but the wider community,” Cr O’Shea said.

He said as part of their role, the Youth Leaders provide a voice for other young people, identify community issues and share information on opportunities for young people to connect to events, programs and service providers.

“The Youth Leaders represent areas from across the entire Toowoomba Region,”he said.

TRC has an equal employment opportunity policy and all recruitment will be based on merit.

Applications are strongly encouraged from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander young people, young people from a range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds, young people with disabilities and LGBTQIA+ young people.

TRC also aims to achieve a gender-balanced group.

Nominations close on Sunday, 31 July and can be submitted here.
