The Narrandera Youth Advisory Council provides our young people the opportunity to have a say in their future. We bring together people who are aged 12-21 and live, work, study or play in Narrandera, to create a strong future for our kids.
We are currently recruiting for young people to join the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). If this is something you are considering then now is the time to apply. The YAC gives young people the platform to have a bigger voice in the community and make a difference in Narrandera Shire. Members learn skills to build confidence and develop their leadership abilities, while also meeting and working with people they may not have before.
Members of the YAC are aged between 12 and 21 and applications close Friday 27 March 2020. For more information and to access the application form, see the PDF documents below.

Youth Councillors recently met with Deputy General Manager Infrastructure, Shane Wilson, at the Lake Talbot Water Park to discuss the project plans for the new splash park, removal of the Island Pool, changes to the Rampage Pool and the new walk in Toddler Pool.
Working with the Youth Advisory Council, who represent young people, helps us to gain feedback from an even more diverse representation of the community.
