Golden Plains Shire Council's Youth Recognition Program recognises and celebrates the achievements of young people aged 12 to 25 across Golden Plains Shire.
Delivered in partnership with the Department of Justice and Community Safety and the Victorian Government's Engage! Program, the Youth Recognition Program aims to recognise the achievements and contributions of young people in our community and celebrate their accomplishments.
As part of the program, community members are invited to highlight local young people aged 12 to 25 and their achievements.
Each month, a young person will be celebrated on the Council’s website and social media channels as Young Person of the Month.
For more information, contact Council's Youth Development Team on 5220 7111 or email [email protected]
Community members can nominate a young person by completing the submission form below.
Congratulations to the June Young Person of the Month...Jemma Mizzi!
Jemma has demonstrated exponential growth in her time being involved with the Golden Plains Youth Hub’s activities and groups. She is a leading member who’s not afraid to put herself out there and always brings passion to everything she does.
Jemma is a dedicated youth leader in the groups she’s involved in, and takes every opportunity to improve her community.
When asked what it means to be a young person in her community, Jemma talked about caring about other young people, ensuring that all their perspectives are seen and to be the voice for young people who may not always speak up.
Jemma feels proud to be recognised as an individual and as a team member in the groups she’s involved in.
A fun fact about Jemma is that she absolutely loves cats!
