Are you looking for the opportunity to develop your leadership skills?
Yarriambiack Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest from young people across the region for its two-day youth empowerment workshop.
The program will run across the January school holidays and is aimed to develop the leadership skills of young people aged 13 - 24 years.
The exact date of the workshop is to be confirmed with interested participants.
Locally recognised youth facilitators as well as youth officers from across the region will be hosting the workshop.
Yarriambiack Shire Council chief executive Jesse Holmes said great things happen in regional communities when young people are engaged and empowered.
"Young people are aware of the world around them and are eager to contribute," Ms Holmes aid.
"This workshop is a fantastic initiative that will allow them to develop their skills, network with other like-minded people and gain confidence to take on leadership roles within the community in years to come."
Yarriambiack youth and library impact officer Justin Knorpp said the workshop would provide youth with important self-discovery.
"Over two days young people will gain insight into who they are, what they have to offer the world and begin to feel more confident in their own abilities to make choices and lead a happier life," he said.
"The young people will learn to trust themselves, others and begin to understand that when we work together we can do more. The young people will discover that there is a world beyond us: a world we are part of and where we all play a vital and active role in."
For expressions of interest, contact Mr Knorpp on 0429941083.
