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.
Noah Hedger, who is in year 9 at St Patrick's College, believes he can make a difference and positively impact our community.
“I believe that I will be a good influence on the young people in the West Tamar and also provide opportunities for other young men who would not ordinarily look toward leadership roles to do so” Mr Hedger said.
“I want to be influential in promoting the West Tamar Youth Strategy and improve life for young people by shaping a positive future for them."
2024 West Tamar Youth Mayor applications will open in term 3!
