Youth have a say on services
■ Local youth are encouraged to take part in a survey that will shape events and activities offered to young people over the next year.
Run by the City of Karratha, the survey aims to gauge issues facing youth in our towns with information to structure future youth programming.
City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said the survey provided an opportunity to discuss events and activities youth would like to see the City offer in the future.
“We run a fantastic youth services program here in the City that provides a wealth of activities and events for young people to enjoy, and often at no cost,” he said.
“In order to continue growing this program and keep what we offer relevant to youth in the community we have to make sure young people can tell us what affects them and what they’d like to see here next.
“Growing up isn’t always easy and we want to make sure our youth services, The Youth Shed in Karratha and The Base in Wickham, provide entertainment and support for young people outside of their school, work and home lives.”
Anyone aged between 11 and 25 is encouraged to complete the online survey, which includes local youth asking questions through video clips.
All youth who take part have the opportunity to enter the draw to win a mountain bike.
The Youth Survey can be completed at The Youth Shed or The Base or online at www.karratha.wa.gov.au/ youth-shed.
