Youthinc Groups

Youthinc groups are councils main local youth advisory networks. Youthinc is formed from local young people aged 10 and over to work with the Youth Development Officers in the planning and delivery of events. Its also a great opportunity for kids to meet other like minded youth and advocate for what they see are their priorities.

Youthinc groups were established in the Blackwater community in February 2013 with the plan to grow across the Central Highlands as part of the Central Highlands Youth Strategy 2018 – 2023.

The Blackwater group has around 30 registered participants that meet weekly to discuss upcoming events, gain new skills and have some fun. It doesn’t cost anything to be involved and its loads of fun. While we do have a limit on numbers involved, we are always looking out for applications.

If you would like to know more about the group and what it can offer feel free to call council on 1300 242 686 and talk to one of the Youth Development team or email your questions to
