Draft Youth Strategy

The draft Youth Strategy will replace the Maroondah City Council Youth Plan 2012-2016 as Council’s key strategic document in regards to young people aged 10-25 who live, work, study or play in Maroondah. The development of the draft Youth Strategy was informed by extensive community consultation and research.

The draft 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.

At its meeting on Monday 15 May, Maroondah City Council (‘the Council’) resolved that the draft Youth Strategy be placed on public exhibition from 16 May to 13 June 2017. The community is now invited to provide comment and feedback.
