Armidale Youth Council

The Armidale Youth Council is a committee made up of young people from Armidale aged between 12 and 24 who work with the Youth Services Coordinator to organise local events and activities for youth.

 The Youth Council also help organise Youth Week which is held annually in April and is a time to celebrate young people and the positive things they bring to their community.

They have also organised the inaugural Armidale Regional Youth Awards to promote and recognize young people’s efforts and achievements in the community, inspire others, celebrate diversity and combat negative youth stereotypes. This is an exciting opportunity to publicly acknowledge and celebrate young people and the many positive contributions they make to our community. It is also an occasion to promote local youth services and to recognise the hard work and dedication of youth workers.Young people aged between 12 and 24 years who work, live or study within the Armidale Regional LGA can be nominated for a Youth Award.
