Our Strategic Outcomes
To guide us we have four Strategic Outcomes:
1. Maroondah’s young people are healthy
Maroondah’s young people are empowered and supported to develop their health and wellbeing in all aspects of their lives. They are supported in this by their families, communities, schools, and community services, who in turn are supported by Council. Maroondah provides a safe and healthy natural and built environment in which young people can flourish now and into the future.
2. Maroondah’s young people are connected
Maroondah’s young people are supported by positive connections with their peers, families and communities. They can connect effectively with places and opportunities, both physically and online. They are well informed about the wide range of services, opportunities, and information available to them, and feel confident to connect with these.
3. Maroondah’s young people are engaged
Maroondah’s young people are empowered and actively engaged in matters that affect them and their communities. They have the skills, confidence, and opportunities to be active empowered citizens. They are able to engage in opportunities that have meaning and purpose to them, and are recognised and celebrated for their accomplishments.
4. Maroondah's young people are prepared
Maroondah’s young people are well prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world, both as adolescents and as they transition into adulthood. They are resourceful and resilient, and equipped to successfully navigate change and challenges in their lives.
