Youth Council

The Charters Towers Council Youth (CTYC) members act as an advisory committee whose role is to represent the voice of young people who live, work, study, or volunteer in the Charters Towers Region and to provide input into Council activities and decisions.

The CTYC is a one (1) year program offered to Year 11 students and nominations are made directly from the following schools with Year 11 (or equivalent) representation:

  • All Souls St Gabriels School
  • Blackheath Thornburgh College
  • Columba Catholic College
  • Charters Towers School of Distance Education
  • Charters Towers State High School

The CTYC will generally meet five (5) times throughout a 12-month term.  This includes one (1) induction workshop and four (4) official meetings.

Would you like to make contact with one of our members to discuss an idea?  Please contact mail@charterstowers.qld.gov.au
