Council has developed a Draft Youth Strategy

The City of Ballarat has developed a draft Youth Strategy informed by youth co-designers and community engagement. We are seeking your feedback to understand if the strategy meets the needs of young people and the broader community.

What is a Youth Strategy?

The development of a new Youth Strategy will provide strategic direction and demonstrate the City of Ballarat’s ongoing commitment to improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for young people aged 12 - 25 years. The plan will identify and recognise the issue of importance to young people and identify the City of Ballarat’s role through a range of critical life transition periods and significant life experiences of the youth age cohort.
