Youth Services are provided to assist young people in the areas of health, social, cultural, recreational and employment needs.
The Kiama Youth Centre opened in 1993 and provides information and referral to young people aged 12 - 24 throughout the Local Government Area.
Trained Youth Workers are available to provide assistance on a wide range of youth issues for young people and their families.
Kiama Youth Centre also offers a range of educational, recreational and community development programs.
Kiama Youth Centre provides 2 Youth Workers to work from Kiama High School each Friday.
Around 3000 young people between the ages of 12 - 24 frequent the Centre each year.
In 2013 Kiama Youth Centre will become a 'touchpoint' and be able to offer on-line telecounselling through Headspace.
Youth Advisory Committee
Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 4pm at Kiama Youth Centre. These meetings are designed to allow young people the opportunity to voice any concerns, issues or suggestions directly to Councillors and Council staff and to advocate on behalf of other young people living in the LGA. Minutes are taken at each meeting and are addressed at formal Council meetings.
Places on the YAC are currently available for young people and it is great experience for youth who want to have their voices heard and be recognised within the community.
If you have a great idea, want to make a suggestion or just find out what is going on for young people come along and join in.
