  • Careers Day Out
  • Furphy Literary Awards
  • Youth Leading the World Congress
  • Recover Together
  • Illuminate
  • Young person leadership training
  • Input on Council Strategies

Greater Shepparton City Council will move to develop a Youth Action Plan that will guide the work of Council for the next three years. The Youth Action Plan will aim to build upon the foundation of work already undertaken by Council over previous years.


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 aim of the Action Plan is to develop a three year plan that responds to the key needs of young people aged between 12-25 years of age who live, study, work and recreate in Greater Shepparton.

This evidence-based action plan identifies priority partnerships, programs, activities and actions to enhance the lives of young people living in Greater Shepparton.

It will be used to guide Greater Shepparton City Council’s activities and investment in the municipal youth sector over the next three years.
