Logo. Words: Selwyn Youth Council

The Selwyn Youth Council (SYC) consists of young people aged between 14- 24 who live in the Selwyn district and provide representation or a voice for the youth in their communities. SYC members meet monthly to assist and advise the Selwyn District Council on issues relating to youth and to increase the Council's understanding of young people's perspectives and needs. When necessary the SYC will present to Council the views of the district's youth on matters of council services, infrastructure and programs.
