New youth network in Roebourne

The Shire of Roebourne is creating a new Youth Leadership Network to engage young people in learning, leadership and community development.

The goal of the project is to raise public awareness of youth issues and address negative stereotypes by actively involving young people in the planning of community events, programs and activities.

The Shire is looking for 15-25 year-olds from a variety of different backgrounds to get on board.

For more information, or to register for the Youth Leadership Network, please phone Kim McColl at the Shire of Roebourne on (08) 9186 8555 or email
