Your Voice Peer Leadership

Do you want to make a difference in your community?

Your Voice Peer Leadership is a small group of dedicated and interested youth aged influencers that will provide a youth voice to the function and work conducted by the wider Youth and Family Team. The group will focus on being a youth voice at events, expos, and other opportunities to inspire young people. The team will work together to plan events behind the scenes, and take part in these events as youth influencers.

The process of registration will include: an induction to the program explaining the role, a presentation of a manual guide, and a welcome gift.

Opportunities for free training will be provided both in areas of leadership, and key areas of interest relevant to the program.

The YOUR VOICE team will meet monthly either face to face or online.

If you're interested in volunteering with the Your Voice Peer Leadership group, please contact Jodie Derrick on 0460 343 809 or via
