Young people

Young people are regarded as being between the ages of 15 and 24 and make up just under 15% of our population. Young people make up an essential section of our community, after all they (or you) are the future of our city.

If you are a young person, Council has a number of initiatives using partnerships to build relationships with you and your friends, as well as youth services across the city. Council is committed to continuing to build on these and improve the services and options available to you.

Current Council youth initiatives include the development of a Discussion Paper, Council's partnership for Youth Week, as well as the Rutherford Youth Protocol.
