Take Charge is a youth leadership forum which will be held on Friday 29 August at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, between 9.30a.m. and 3.30p.m. The Forum is focused on providing young people, aged 12-18 years, with the tools required to have a stronger voice in society, take a leadership role in their community and inspire them to get involved in volunteering.
Last year was the first year for the Take Charge forum and Junee was represented with four students from Junee High School. There were over 120 participants from across the Riverina last year! Let's see if Junee can increase its participation this year.
The Forum is open to students aged 12-18 years.
Junee Local Employment Program
One of the Community’s most desirable outcomes is to retain young people in town. Time and time again when community forums are held the issue of retaining young people in Junee through local employment keeps coming up. This may be driven by families wanting to be closer to one another or perhaps it is about job creation and supporting the local economy.
As a civic leader and leading community advocate we have asked ourselves: what is it we can do to make a collective contribution for Junee towards this cause? Here is our response!
To lead the way, Junee Shire Council will be providing two student placements this year.
