New youth council to gain ear of Minister

WA Youth Minister Peter Tinley has called for young Western Australians who are interested in making a difference to the State to nominate for the Ministerial Youth Advisory Council.

The Minister wants to form a council of 10 outstanding young Western Australians, aged 15-25, who can act as a sounding board and provide input into WA Government youth policy.

The council will investigate matters referred by the Minister for Youth and provide feedback and information around young peoples’ experiences.

Young people with a broad range of knowledge, skills, backgrounds, experience and education across metropolitan and regional WA will form the council’s members and meet with the Minister on a quarterly basis.

Successful applicants are expected to act in a personal capacity, drawing on relevant knowledge, experience and skills.

They will not represent a specific association.

All out-of-pocket expenses, including travel, will be reimbursed.

Nominations are open until August 27 2017.
