Our home, your destination, the success story of the west.

Shared Vision. Trust. Community Ownership. Positive Attitude. Respect.

A little about how the Youth Council started …

A workshop was held in June to discuss a range of youth-related issues in Charleville including a proposed Youth Council for the Murweh Shire. This idea was an outcome of the HOPE Project (Harmony, Opportunity, Pride, Empowerment) and the aim is to bring about more positivity in the town, give young people a say and provide a forum where young people can participate in the community as a team to help the Shire move forward.

The inaugural Youth Council Meeting

The inaugural meeting was held at 1.00pm on Friday 17th July 2015 at the Murweh Shire Council Chambers Room.

This meeting will call for expressions of interest from interested young people and will be guided by Ann-Maree Johnson, a local community volunteer, and Annie Liston, Murweh Shire Council’s Deputy Mayor.

Goals and outcomes

Overcoming boredom on the school holidays, creating an after-school hang out where they can have fun, graffiti, creating job opportunity and bullying are MSYC's immediate goals.
