Education and employment under the spotlight at Council’s Youth Forum
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Paul Lake, said a key focus of Council was to ensure that young people are supported in their education and employment choices.
“The Youth Forum is just one example of how Council is helping the city’s youth to achieve success in their educational and employment pursuits,” said Cr Lake.
“We want the younger members of our community to recognise that there are many opportunities available to them in the local area, which will help them embark on their career pathways.”
The Forum will acknowledge and celebrate the positive contributions of young people, as well as give them the chance to share their views and to hear about education and employment opportunities from local service providers in the area.
Guest speakers include a young person from Campbelltown regarding youth traineeships and representatives from education and employment services. The day will finish with a panel of young people and service representatives, who will be available to answer the audience’s questions.
Council’s Education and Employment Youth Forum will be held from 9.30am to 12noon on Monday 27 June at the Civic Hall, located on the corner of Queen Street and Broughton Street, Campbelltown.
