Mayor George Seymour said the events were being held to celebrate the region’s 12 to 25-year-olds and the positive contributions they make to the community.
“Young people make invaluable contributions to our region and play a vital role in our community,” Cr Seymour said.
“To support our young people, Council is committed to working in partnership with youth and community organisations to provide strategic advice and capacity building that encourages young people’s participation in the community,” he said.
