Monash Youth Committee

Are you aged between 15 and 25 years? Maybe you aren't old enough to vote yet but you have a keen interest in your local community.

Council believes you have an important voice.

That's why we believe in, and support, the Monash Youth Committee.

Terms of Reference (pdf, 156KB)

The Committee is a place to meet with other young people interested in the world around them, to discuss ideas and promote positive initiatives. It's also a chance to experience acting as a media officer, photographer, treasurer or chairperson - all skills that look great on a resume.

Cr Shane McCluskey and Cr Rebecca Paterson are Councillor representatives on this reference group (substitute representative - Mayor Stuart James).
