The purpose of the youth network is to bring together organisations that provide services to 12-24 year olds who reside in the Mount Alexander Shire. The networks facilitate sharing of resources and professional capacity building. The networks will also develop and implement their own action plans based on the agreed strategic priorities.
The membership consists of organisations that provide services within the Mount Alexander Shire and/or those that are committed to supporting young people. See Terms of Reference for a list of members.
