Youth development is an important part in the development of the community within the Berrigan Shire. Youth development is about providing young people with positive experiences and opportunities to enhance their strengths and abilities.
Through the projects created by the Development Officers, youth are given the opportunities to contribute to the Berrigan Shire and as a result, shape their own future. Through youth development, communities are able to recognise, value, support and encourage the contribution of young people.
Youth participation is a way to provide opportunities for youth to take on greater responsibilities and, through real world experiences, to gain skills and develop into successful adults.
