West Tamar Youth Mayor Program

Future Shaper

The West Tamar Youth Mayor Program

is for a year 7-9 student (students in year 6-8 apply for the following year) selected by YAC and the Mayor to represent the West Tamar municipality. They will provide a focus and a channel for young people’s views to be heard by those in Council.

The Youth Mayor can be influential in promoting the West Tamar Youth Strategy as they support shaping a positive future for local young people.

The 2023-2026 West Tamar Youth Strategy identified the goal of developing formidable young people with skills and confidence in our municipality. The West Tamar Youth Mayor role will recognise the importance of helping better represent young people in the West Tamar, by speaking on behalf of their needs and opportunities to publicly and effectively work towards empowering local young people.

Mayor Christina Holmdahl, announced the 2024 West Tamar Youth Mayor in Alice Gregory on November 23rd 2023..

Alice Gregory, who is in year 7 at Riverside High school, believes she can make a difference and positively impact our community.

“I would like to be youth mayor because I believe that younger generations deserve a voice and say in what happens." Miss Gregory said.

"If I was Youth Mayor, I could help act on issues and make an impact for young people and children. I also enjoy supporting younger children and working with people of all ages.

"I would encourage and support people in our local community on issues and topics that are meaningful to them by giving them a voice. I would also inform people within the local community of changes."

2025 Youth Mayor applications will open in Term 3!
