Applications sought for Tasman Youth Council

February 17th, 2011
[Tasman District Council press release]

Recruitment for the 2011 Tasman Youth Council has begun, with applications currently being accepted for interested young people to join and make a difference in their local communities.

Formed in 1998, the Tasman Youth Council (TYC) has a short but proud history advocating for making Tasman a better place for young people. Accomplishments to date include producing and publishing 'Jam Magazine', hosting freshfm's 'JamShow' youth radio show, judging and presenting the Youth Volunteer Awards, planning and running youth events and programs, and assisting the Council with strategic planning and consultation exercises.

The TYC is split into four regional clusters - Waimea, Motueka, Golden Bay, Murchison, and is overseen and administered by the Tasman District Council Community Services department. Each cluster pursues its own projects and interests based on the needs expressed by young people in their local community.

Any interested young people or youth leaders should go to for an application form. This is a great opportunity for young people to develop personal leadership skills whilst improving the quality of life for all young people in Tasman.
