Young people are central to a vibrant and healthy community. When given the opportunities, young people bring passion, energy and creativity to the whole community. 

Wodonga Council wants to ensure all young people in Wodonga benefit from local opportunities and are given the chance to achieve optimal wellbeing.

The council is committed to supporting young people, their families and carers by working with stakeholders to foster environments and conditions that enhance health and wellbeing of young people as they navigate through to adulthood. 

It is with this in mind, the council designed the draft Wodonga Youth Strategy; a strategy that seeks to help our young people be safe, healthy, connected, and prepared.

The draft youth strategy provides a clear, strategic platform for action for the next five years. The strategy will guide the council’s work and direct resource toward priorities that will support Wodonga’s young people to improve their wellbeing.

The strategy seeks to define the council’s role in working for and alongside young people in Wodonga, ensure local actions are evidence based, and align local efforts and resources to improve shared outcomes.

The Youth Strategy: 

  • Covers young people aged from nine years to 24 years who work, live, learn and play in Wodonga;
  • Is a whole of council strategic document; and,
  • Does not cover organisations or groups outside of the council. It does, however, seek to guide the council’s work with these groups.

The strategy will be supported by an annual action plan that will set out key actions for implementation against priority areas, including measures to track progress against outcomes.
