Youth Strategy Evaluation

How can we make the City of Greater Bendigo the best it's ever been for young people?

The current Youth Strategy called Explore, Engage, Empower - Young People in Greater Bendigo (2017-2021) is ready for a refresh!

But before we get into the fun stuff of talking about the big issues, we want to know what was successful and what needs more work on the old one!

FOR YOU TO DO: Check out the goals and actions of our current youth strategy and then provide feedback!
