Youth have their say

Youth have their say More than 100 students will help shape the future of the City of Canterbury Bankstown for their peers, by taking part in the Council-lead Youth Summit later this week (Thursday 7 June). No  

More than 100 students will help shape the future of the City of Canterbury Bankstown for their peers, by taking part in the Council-lead Youth Summit later this week (Thursday 7 June).

Year 12 student at Wiley Park Girls High School, Georgia Masters, who will be co-hosting the event, said she can’t wait to get involved.

"Youth inclusion will be the main issue I raise on Thursday," the 17-year-old Belmore resident said.

"A lot of my peers feel our demographic is under-represented, even though we make up such a large part of the Canterbury-Bankstown community. We all want to be more involved and consulted frequently. I’m excited to put forward my ideas and work with Council to make them a reality."

Mayor Khal Asfour said the opinions and ideas of the participating students, aged 14-18 years, will help Council establish the first Youth Action Plan for Canterbury-Bankstown.

"It is time to renew our commitment to positively influence the environment for our youth in a City-wide plan," Mayor Asfour said.

"We’ll be looking for ideas on how our youth want to be communicated with; what they need from Council; and how we can work together more effectively, all of which will help form a powerful plan for action and change."

The topics up for discussion include:

  • The main issues facing youth living in Canterbury-Bankstown;
  • What an ideal youth service would look like;
  • What youth want from their final years of high school education;
  • Jobs our youth are looking for and related support; and
  • The desired health and recreation opportunities our youth are requiring.

Schools from throughout the City will participate, to capture a wide range of thoughts and opinions, including Birrong Girls, Belmore Boys and Condell Park High Schools.

The summit will be led by Council and supported by local youth services, including Mission Australia, Roundabout Youth Centre and Coolaburoo Neighbourhood Centre.

There are more youth-focused events and activities coming up in June for residents aged nine-18 years to get involved in, including:

  • 9.30am Thursday 14 June – Koori Youth Forum for Indigenous students, aged nine-17 years, at Bankstown Arts Centre. More than 80 Indigenous youth are expected to enjoy art, music and dance workshops, food vendors and mentorship from successful Indigenous artists and composers;
  • 3-5pm every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during school terms – drop-in sessions for youth, aged 12-18 years, at Belmore Youth Resource Centre; and
  • 7-11.15pm every Saturday until 30 June – Twilight Sports for youth, aged 12-18 years, at Bankstown Basketball Stadium.
