The Sunshine Coast Youth Strategy 2010-2015 will be officially
launched this Saturday (11 December 2010) at the Summer of Sound
festival in Tickle Park, Coolum at 2.40pm.
The youth strategy was developed with input from the region's young people to ensure that youth needs, issues and aspirations are embedded into existing and future functions, facilities, services and resources of council.
Community Engagement and Governance Portfolio Councillor Christian Dickson will officially launch the youth strategy during the free music festival aimed at young people on the Coast.
The festival will run from 11am to 6pm, and will feature live music from local bands as well as a skate competition. The event is a combined venture between the Sunshine Coast Youth Partnership, Drink Safe and Lifeline.
Cr Dickson said the youth strategy was aimed at delivering a partnership approach towards building a brighter future for young people on the Coast over the next five years and beyond.
"The youth strategy has been developed after extensive consultation with young people, local service providers and community members," he said.
"This consultation has been vital in identifying issues facing young people and has ensured that this youth strategy accurately reflects the needs of young people living on the Sunshine Coast.
"Council is committed to working in partnership with young people, youth services providers and the community to ensure the effective participation and support of young people in council's decision-making processes, within their own communities and across the region."
