Youth invited to YAC about growing up in "dire shire"

BYRON Youth Service (BYS) is planning to hold two forums on Thursday, April 11 at the Byron YAC during Youth Week.

Young people from Mullumbimby High came up with the title Things Are Getting Dire, Have Your Say About The Shire for the forums.

Deborah Pearse from BYS said the morning forum would focus on a conversation with students who have been invited from Byron High, Mullumbimby High, Shearwater and Cape Byron Steiner School.

Approximately 15 students have been invited from each school to participate in activities that will focus on students sharing ideas, opinions and solutions on issues they have faced growing up in Byron Shire.

The evening forum from 6-8pm is open to any of our local young people who would like to come and share ideas about how we can make Byron a better place, for young people and for everyone.

"The ideas and solutions from both forums will be fed back into the larger Building A Better Byron Bay community consultation process," Ms Pearse said.

Anyone needing transport to the evening forum should call BYS on 6685 7777 as soon as possible so BYS can book buses.
