Golden Plains Shire Council is inviting young people in our community to participate in the Youth Pathways Survey to identify the job support and training that will best support them to build capacity, learn professional skills and equip them for the future.
The Youth Pathways Survey is designed for local young people aged 14 to 25 and aims to identify the skills and learning opportunities for young people that will provide pathways to employment, encourage active community involvement, or support small business start-up opportunities.
Council’s Youth Development team is delivering a range of activities and projects that meet the individual goals and aspirations of young people in Golden Plains, in suitable locations that are accessible to them. The team is also committed to providing young people with a range of opportunities to support their pathways to employment and training.
This initiative is supported by a $150,000 grant from the Victorian Government’s Engage! Program.
How you can be involved
Young people aged 14 to 25 years in Golden Plains are encouraged to complete the Youth Pathways Survey.
The survey is open from Tuesday 14 February until Monday 27 March, 2023 and can be completed below. Printed copies of the survey are available at Council’s Customer Hubs, Golden Plains Civic Centre, 2 Pope Street, Bannockburn and The Well, 19 Heales Street, Smythesdale.
What happens next
Feedback from young people about what training courses they would like to see offered will be used to guide the development of the youth pathways training program.
