The Selwyn Youth Council has three fresh faces in 2018 with Chloe Duff, Ethan Richards-White and Taylin Smith joining the group.

Chloe and Ethan both attend Rolleston College, where representation on the Youth Council was particularly sought. Taylin Smith from Dunsandel attends Lincoln High School.

Paige Sullivan, Chair of the Youth Council, says all three new members are great role models.

“We’re excited for the new and existing members of the Youth Council to continue contributing to Selwyn’s vibrant community.”

“Projects on the radar include the Selwyn Link bus service, What do YOUth think? consultations, and the very first Selwyn Youth Survey. We’re excited to brainstorm other ideas at our orientation weekend in Living Springs this month,” she says.

Selwyn Youth Council have held their first meeting of the year in February with meet-and-greets and planning for the coming year.

A team-building trip was held which involved games, a lunch and ten-pin bowling.

The Youth Council are very proud to be able to continue to give back to the community through their discretionary fund. The Selwyn Youth Project Fund is available to people or organisations who would like to see youth thrive in Selwyn through events or activities which contribute to youth wellbeing.

Applications are assessed at the Youth Council’s monthly meetings.

See the Youth Council page for more details and the application form.
