Youth Program returns to SJ

Published on Thursday, 24 August 2023 at 2:52:19 PM

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is excited to announce the re-launch of our youth programming, a series of activities designed to engage and empower young people in the community.

Led by our qualified, experienced and fun Youth Development Team, we’re working with SJ’s young people and creating opportunities for them to connect, learn, laugh and develop new friendships.

The Shire’s Youth program will offer a range of activities catering to different interests and backgrounds, such as drop-in sessions, wellness sessions, life skill sessions and school holiday programs.

They will all be designed to promote the well-being, resilience, and leadership skills of young people, as well as providing them with a safe and supportive environment to socialise and express themselves.

Our Youth Development Team are energetic, enthusiastic and nurturing. They’re working with the young people of SJ to plan what activities and programs they’d most like to be a part of.

This gives our youth a voice and ensures we’re delivering the best possible programs to suit their needs. We will also provide opportunities for them to assist us in delivering some programs and activities, giving them life experience plus encouragement to just have a go at things.

Our team will also be regularly consulting with our 12 to 18-year-olds through surveys and feedback sessions to ensure that the Youth of SJ have their say.

To find out more about the Youth of SJ program and the upcoming activities and events, follow the Youth Instagram account @YouthofSJ or visit the events calendar here.

Youth drop-in sessions are also available Monday to Wednesday from 3pm - 5.30pm at the Briggs Park Youth Space.

Young people aged 12-18 in the Shire can come by for some snacks, games and activities.
