Maroondah City Council is seeking community feedback on its draft Youth Strategy, which will help guide the delivery of vital services and support to young people aged 10-25 years and their families across Maroondah.

The draft Youth Strategy draws on extensive research and consultation with over 5000 young people, as well as youth service providers, community members, parents and carers.

The Youth Strategy seeks to:

  • Guide and focus Council’s work with and for young people.
  • Ensure that Council delivers best practice services for young people and their families.
  • Utilise a strong evidence base to help Council better meet the needs and aspirations of Maroondah’s young people.
  • Ensure that Council is actively engaged with young people and responsive to their needs.
  • Outline how Council will raise the well-being of Maroondah’s young people.

Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Tony Dib said we are committed to working with young people, the community and other levels of government to ensure all young people who live, work and study in our city are healthy, connected, engaged and prepared. 

“Council recognises and values the contribution that young people bring to Maroondah, and I encourage residents, including those who work with children and young people, to read and respond to the strategy before it is presented to Council for consideration,” Cr Dib said.

The key directions set out in the strategy work towards the long-term community vision outlined in Maroondah 2040: Our future together, which provides a ‘roadmap’ for the community, Council and other levels of government to partner together and create a future that enhances Maroondah as a great place to live, work, play and visit.
