We’ve won a prestigious local government award for our youth leadership program.

The LG Professionals SA Leadership Excellence Award was presented to our youth development Coordinator Carly Didcote at recent awards dinner in Adelaide.

“I’m grateful to the young people who make this program a success. We take a strength-based approach to working with young people.

“It’s about creating meaningful experiences to help them develop skills for the future,” said Carly.

Our youth leadership program, developed in 2018, offers leadership training to young people aged 14 to 25 years old.

Across a year, participants learn how to lead and design youth programs and events, including local youth awards.

The program has recently received recognition from other councils, resulting in City of Tea Tree Gully youth co-hosting a Youth Leadership Summit at Roxby Downs Council.
