Wyong Action Team (WAT)
As part of the creation of the Youth Engagement Strategy in 2010 we asked young people how they wanted to get involved and you clearly said you wanted to make ‘stuff happen for youth, by youth’.
Based on your feedback we have created the WAT to help young people make stuff happen for their peers, make sure young people have a voice on youth issues and provide a youth perspective on our policies and procedures.
Check out the WAT web page for more information.
