Want to create change in your community?

The Shire of Dardanup Youth Advisory Group (YAG) is a group of local young people aged 12-24 years who meet up throughout the year to plan school holiday activities, get involved with community events and do various things to make the Shire of Dardanup a better place for young people.

The aim is to provide young people in the Shire of Dardanup with the opportunity to share their ideas, skills, views and contributions with their communities and Council.

By joining the YAG you will gain experience in things like community engagement, event management and community development.

The YAG also provides feedback and recommendations to Council on issues relating to young people in the Shire.

It’s fun, great for your CV and a good excuse to meet new people.
