Youth Strategy

Greater Shepparton City Council continues to recognise the significant role that young people play in the community. The Greater Shepparton Youth Strategy and Action Plan 2012-2015 will provide Council with a strategic framework to guide Council’s role within the youth sector into the future.

Vision

Greater Shepparton City Council value young people within its community and will work in partnership to create opportunities to develop young people who are vibrant, passionate and fully engaged.

Greater Shepparton City Council will work in partnership with the youth sector to develop collaborative approaches, responsive and coordinated services for the ultimate benefit of all young people.

The strategy will inform how we will work in partnership with the youth sector, young people and their families to ensure that young people are provided with every opportunity to actively participate in their community including those with diverse social, economic or cultural backgrounds.

The Strategy was developed through extensive consultation with young people, youth sector providers, education settings and internal Council departments. The suggestions raised have been pivotal in informing the key directions of the strategy.
