Having a sense of 'being connected' to people and places in meaningful ways is important to young people as they seek stability, balance and identity at a time of personal transformation and growth.
Research confirms that community connectedness and social support is important to our overall health and wellbeing.
The aim of the Youth Engagement Program is to create places and programs that stimulate social interaction and creative expression, as well as providing recreational, sporting and leisure opportunities.
Initiatives that support this objective include a comprehensive school holiday program, the creation of the Youth Reference Group, the annual celebration of National Youth Week and the Bush-to-Beach Youth Exchange.
