With the Youth Board designing and working on a range of projects it was wonderful to be recognised as WA Youth Awards 2007 Winner of Citizenship Group category.
Kids met once a month to plan and deliver a range of programs:
– Developed clean up campaigns in collaboration with Clean Up Australia Day in local areas.
– Ran TravelSmart to School programs in local and regional areas in partnership with Department of Planning and Infrastructure.
– Partnered with Challenger TAFE on a Certificate 1 Leadership Development, funded by Alcoa of Australia, taking 25 young people a year on a leadership for sustainability training program.
– Developed a Rapt in Reptiles partnership with Perth Zoo outlining the steps to make reptile friendly gardens.
– Worked with schools in City of South Perth on adopting and caring for river foreshore areas.
– Ran the Millennium Kids Youth Environmental Conference at Fairbridge WA with young people presenting their Challenges to Parliament. It was wonderful to receive a Response to the Challenges from the then Premier Alan Carpenter MLA.
