Recruitment for NT Youth Round Table 2021 is now open, while the NT Youth Round Table 2020 came to a close this weekend at the Darwin Waterfront.
The 2020 participants came together for the last time over two days, presenting the community-based projects and recommendations they have worked on through the year to the Minister for Youth, Lauren Moss, Assistant Minister for Education, Mark Monaghan, and government department Chief Executives.
Being part of the 2021 NT Youth Round Table is a great opportunity for young people to develop their leadership skills, get involved in community life and have their say on important topics that impact young Territorians.
It provides a direct communication avenue between young people aged 15-25 years and the Northern Territory Government.
If you or someone you know is between the ages of 15-25 and passionate about making a difference in the community, please visit the Office of Youth Affairs website to fill out an NT Youth Round Table application form.
Applications close 15 January 2021.
As noted by Minister for Youth, Lauren Moss:
“The Territory has a relatively young population and the Youth Round Table provides a platform for young Territorians to have their views heard by the NT Government about issues that interest or affect them and their peers.
“These are important roles for our young people, giving them the opportunity to make real change across their communities and develop important foundational skills for their future careers.
“As a community, it’s important that we recognise and support the meaningful contribution young people can and do make to our community; they are the Territory’s future leaders.
“I encourage young people from right across the Territory – particularly young people living in our regional and remote communities – to put your hand up for the 2021 NT Youth Round Table. Your voice is important!”
