Why is the City developing a Youth Plan?
The City is developing its first Youth Plan to address the needs and aspirations of young people in our community and to be able to plan relevant events, programs and services. An annual action plan will be developed once the Youth Plan has been finalised.
This is the City’s inaugural Youth Plan and will build the foundation for subsequent youth plans.
Who is developing the Youth Plan?
The Youth Affairs Council of WA (YACWA) has been engaged by the City to analyse the data collected in the surveys and will then, together with research, experience and best practice, draft the Youth Plan. YACWA is the State's peak body for youth affairs and is widely acknowledged as a leader in the field of youth participation.
YACWA has trained a group of City of South Perth Youth Plan Ambassadors to carry out face to face surveys with young people. The South Perth Youth Network (SPYN) and ambassadors have been involved in the creation of the survey questions.
What is the South Perth Youth Network (SPYN)?
The South Perth Youth Network (SPYN) is the City of South Perth’s youth leadership team. The group is made up of young people aged 12-25 from a wide range of backgrounds, who are keen to take action around the issues that they care about. Find out more about SPYN on the City’s website.
What are the next steps?
All responses received will be analysed by YACWA who will develop the draft Youth Plan.
