On Tuesday March 24, 2015 Mitchell Shire Council’s Youth Services team hosted the first of YACVic’s four rural and regional Local Government Youth Services Forums in Wallan. The event was held at the Wallan Multi-Purpose Community Centre. The forum was facilitated by YACVic’s Victorian Rural Youth Service Initiative (VRYS) and featured:
- Guest speaker John Kouvelas (Department of Health and Human Services) speaking on successful grant seeking in the Youth Sector and upcoming Youth grants.
- Workshop: Local youth sector issues and partnership opportunities
- Q&A panel: Showcasing local examples of best practice in youth engagement
The Central Ranges LLEN was proud to be part of the forum and felt the day was very informative and well received by all who attended.
