Banyule Youth Charter and Advocacy
Our Youth team promotes opportunities and activities that actively engage young people in all aspects of Council's decision-making process.
The Banyule Youth Charter is an agreement between Council and young people about sharing decision-making. Council uses a number of ways to do this including consultations, working alongside and with young people in working parties, supporting summits, forums, and youth participation networks.
The Charter sets out agreed principles for young people and Council that guarantee the voice of young people is heard and acted upon.
