Welcome to Youth Services! We empower young people aged 12-25 with opportunities that enhance their well-being, development, expression, enjoyment, and resilience.
GSC Youth Charter: Engage, Empower and Value
The Glenelg Shire Council developed the Youth Charter to provide a ‘whole of Council’ approach for engaging with young people and promoting their participation in planning, service delivery and decision making.
We completed a Youth Audit to ensure that the Youth Charter contained meaningful and achievable outcomes for both Glenelg Shire Council and our young people. We collected information via a survey and focus group sessions during departmental meetings.
The results from the Youth Audit, the Voices and Choices Project and focus group sessions with the Glenelg Shire Council's Youth Advisory Group (YAG) have underpinned the development of the Youth Charter.
