Glen Eira Youth Services — leading the way in engagement

Glen Eira Youth Services provides programs, information and support to young people and their families, who live, work and socialise in the City of Glen Eira.

To ensure Council is able to provide targeted services that are responsive to the ever-changing needs of young people, Youth Services has embarked on one of the largest youth consultation projects conducted by Council. This has included:

— Connecting with Young People Strategy 2018−2021
The Connecting with Young People Strategy aims to empower young people and Council to work together to improve how Council connects with young people, so that young people can actively shape their community and their future.

— Glen Eira Resilience Survey 2017 Report
A total of 4,350 students took part in the 2017 Student Resilience Survey that explores the self-reported strengths of young people across 10 key resilience domains.

— 2017 Youth iPad Survey
A total of 304 young people aged between 10 to 25 years participated in the iPad Survey and gave their opinions on youth issues, support, social connection and aspirations.

The above consultations will inform an over-arching Youth Services Strategy, which address the identified needs outlined in each of the above engagement projects. It is anticipated that the Youth Services Strategy will be completed in early 2019.
