MYWA - Maroondah Youth Wellbeing Advocates


Maroondah Youth Wellbeing Advocates (MYWA)

MYWA is a unique opportunity for young people aged 15-25 to help raise the wellbeing of Maroondah’s young people.

Through MYWA, a group of young people work in partnership with Council to:

  • Advocate for Maroondah’s young people,
  • Contribute to Council strategies and plans, and
  • Provide advice to Council to ensure that young people are effectively engaged on matters that affect them and their communities.

MYWA provides young people with genuine opportunities to develop and apply their leadership and professional work skills, and use their strengths and skills to help their community.

The MYWA team meet on the last Wednesday of the month in Ringwood with a committment of 1 year until July 2019. Advocates are reimbursed for their time and there may be an opportunity for extension.

MYWA is supported by the Victorian Government through the Engage! program.
