Do you know a student aged between 15-18 who enjoys public speaking and is keen to make a difference in the community?
Nominations are now open for Blacktown Council’s 2018-2019 Youth Ambassador Program.
“Being Blacktown City Youth Ambassador is a really important role, and it’s quite moving once you realise how much of a voice and impact young people can have,” 2017 ambassador Maddalyn Bokenham said.
2016 Youth Ambassador Keiran Hagerty added: “My self-confidence, my self-esteem, my public speaking skills and interpersonal skills have sky-rocketed since the program.”
Youth ambassadors represent Blacktown City at a number of council functions such as citizenship ceremonies and civic receptions.
Applications close March 23. Go to blacktown.nsw.gov.au for an application form.
The program is a great way for young people to connect and become actively involved in their local community.
“It helps to build confidence and is a great opportunity for students to make a difference in Blacktown City,” mayor Stephen Bali said.
